    There is no way to check it yourself.

    Go to some meter expert and he'll open the meter and can check weather is there any kinda change of IC over there.

    BTW all the reconditioned car meters are reveresed.

    Just my 2 cents.

    An overseas friend claim that in his country, a family that specialise in changing meter reading is earning big bucks!

    Meters in used cars are normally change before they are export.

    There are no way to check unless you know how to change the meter too.

    Car condition can tells you the exact meter reading. no need to go to any Meter Repairing shop....
    And remember if you drop your plan to buy a car coz of its high millage (apart from its condition) you are a big fool....at some extend High Millage effects but if the condition of a car is good..go ahead

    i think it can be checked with a OBD (on board diagnostics) tyre thread, engine condition. a cousin was going to buy a 20k driven markx was checkd by toyota on checking it was revealed to be driven around 40+ the deal was called off
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    as killervtec said.... in order to temper the reading, an ic chip has to be de-soldered reprogrammed and the soldered again, opening up the meter and looking at the ic can tell you either it has been done or not
    its all about power to weight ratio...

    You can check the conditions of the screws of the dash board. Like Chinyoti said, you can judge by the tire thread but from where you will have the actual thread depths and you need depth meters as well.

    If the condition is good overall, don't miss the car and don't get yourself too touch about these things.

    i have seen personally CL9s and 7series meter reversed in rawalpindi so thr not much of a check to know but alos hints such as weared steering wheel gear knobs do give clues if the meters says low millage!!!! also on old cars if the numbers dont line up all in one line then its been clocked backwards for sure!!! easiest way is the steering wheel it should give a wear look or rubbed feel!

    In Pakistan we only see car show-sha but abroad mileage is consider, my suggestion is check both espisally interior for usage check gear lever, scratches on steering, seat conditions, mat/carpet (origional one) and accelator brake pedal covers you easily judge car driven or mileage.

    yes, no device can check the meter if its tempered! bacause, the ICs can be reprogrammed to display desired results!

    For BMW E38 users and buyers


    i had a BMW with some problem in odo reading display and i asked around why isnt display clear, i didnt get a clear answer as no one gives a straight answer here to avoid being questioned later that " you said that to me on that date"

    so in order to change the odo display i read the wiring comes from ecu, so when you change the odo in 7 series it will still show the same reading, and ecu of BMW is linked with VIN number of car , result is the whole car is connected to its VIN number and to change a part you have to send in the VIN number to BMW for correct pre setting before installing that display wired to ecu
    ,,, unless you know the track, you're not good enough to sit behind the wheel." K T
