Question Girl in need of help....km to miles query

Hello.....just bought 94 import wrx it shows 148,000ish on the dials but now it's tallying up in miles I was told clocks (kilometres) were changed so it reads miles but clearly the 140odd thousand is in km and ontop if that is now miles....can this be right????

Hope this makes sense

that is correct and for a my94 scoob thats pretty low milage 148,000km to miles equates to very roughly 91962.9 miles

But how do I know the actual mileage if it was in kilometers and now is tallying up in miles? Or what if it has 148000 miles!? I don't know how to tell, the clock faces show mph as they were apparently kph and he said the wiring changes when the clocks are or something?? Confused....

you should have a notification of when the conversion was done and the mph sticker was put on the dash...seeing as it's now showing miles there are a few options....leave it as it is,remove the pod and rewind it to the correct millage or find a breakers ie here( CONTACT) and see if they have a pod with roughly the same miles on it..

Re: Girl in need of help....km to miles query

i cant change the clock counters as the car has lots of previous MOT's so it wont match up when i sell the car.....ive no paperwork telling me when the km was changed to miles either the MOT's say....(however many)km then miles and its a continuous order it doesnt go from (example - 148000km - 90000 miles) on the MOT.....will taking the dash off where the clocks are maybe tell me something? and changing the clocks face...does that automatically mean it needed to be wires to clock up miles...i thought even thought the clock faces shows mph the actual 148000 thing would still tally up km, but it doesnt?
