As taken from the paper today.
"The mileometer on a 4 yr old Peugeot 406 leapt to 386000 miles after an electrical fault.Owner Philip would have to travel around the world 15 times to cover that distance.He has only done 12000,but could face a bill of £900 to fix it.However,that would reset the mileage to zero.Philip said "i`d never sell my car with 386k miles.But no one will belive i haven`t tampered with it if 12k miles disappear".A local car dealer said "only Peugeot can calibrate the mileage".
£900!!![:0].He could always have a look in the back of Exchange & Mart under "mileage adjustment".Would be a lot cheaper![:D]

That sounds a bit too expensive for a new instrument cluster, if it's needed, and setting the new cluster up on the vehicle, with a lap top to the correct mileage, which the vehicle has travelled, which could be proven with service records, and the previous M.O.T.
