Mileage Adjustment..



Seems like an easy job. I guess we just cant trust the mileage on a used car at all especially from a dealer.

I start buying cars few years ago by looking for actural condition instead of mileage. Most are just fake.

It's been that easy for yeas. Most cars can be adjusted via the ODB2 port.

To stay safe, check the wear on the car i.e. steering wheel, drivers seat, drivers inner door handle, gear knob, floor mat, stone chips on bonnet etc. and that they all raleta to the mileage. Also check the history thoroughly, check all MOT's & Servce history to verfy mileage.
Even this don't prove the car hasn't been clocked, but it helps.

Many Thanks!

+1 especially in Hong Kong.

Even with those correction tools I know a way to show the real mileage on a E9x. But I agree with Ken, don't trust most sellers out there.

Rule of thumb - if it's too good to be true, it usually is
