Mileage is stored in the instrument cluster. If you find a used cluster you can send the cluster to an aftermarket shop to set the miles to match your car.

Definitely be careful - the Federal Odometer Act (Google it) is very restrictive about damage to odometers & odometer replacements & repairs. There are harsh penalties if you or the mechanic do not comply.

I had to sell one of my old cars with a (actual mileage unknown) because a fuse blew out that ran the mechanical odometer. It killed the value so much that I sold it to a family member for almost nothing.

thats why I want to do it ASAP

my last reading was last monday when my check engine light flashed I took the car to mechanic to check it. thats why I am good with anything more than 83000-85000 .if you guy know any one who would like to have the one that has 81000 and give me his +83k then I am fine with it.

This is easily fixed with a odometer correction tool

http://www.diga-soft.de/odometer-software.php

Called a Diga-consult. It's super expensive but worth it if you have a lease.

Also http://www.newagespeedometer.com/nas/order...3&pics=true

You send your ecu in and it's $500 to have it changed to whatever you want.

If you google Odometer reprogramming and adjusting tool a lot of sites come up. Sift through them, also change the search around a bit and you will find something. This has been going on and done for quite some time.

All of which was covered in tool pants link lol. oh well.
