    It is illegal.  End of story.  We do not want to be partners in crime.

    i own a garage in uk ..i never have ..but if i wanted to i could make a phone call ..and the guy who comes out guarantees he can clock any car ..£100 for what mileage you want ..fact is over here in uk we have whats called an MOT test if car is 3 years old or more ..the mileage is recorded every time ..so its another reason not to cheat

      This is for a electronic  (LCD Display). I imagine a dealer could do this with their factory  OBDI access tool ? I know the old school ODO's could be set back . I am talking a vehicle that is 5 years old.

    Yes, it is possible to put a different odometer in, or to mess with it somehow. It's generally illegal if you use the revised number as being the original number. 

    One of my trucks has two different odometers, depending on which dash module I happen to have installed. (I'm trying to fix at least one of them so it's perfect, and neither one has a working odometer right now.) In my case it's not important, because the truck is nearly 30 years old, and I plan to keep it long enough to use it as my coffin. No, I won't sell it to you!

      Obviously someone must have tried. Also obviously the digital odometers ought to be built to prevent that stuff. Details? Don't know.
