    OH NO!!!!! I am so sorry,having been through the same thing with my first it is devastating mine was showing 18,500 and done 50,000 so the difference on yours is 12K and is a "cash negotiable" item if you wish to keep the car IMHO

    It seems a low amount to scrub for the money it would gain versus the risk however?

    Soulman not wanting to doubt what dean found, but could that have been the Km reading instead. Rough calculation from 33590km's = 20871 miles which is not too far out.

    Strangely enough 33590Km converts to 20872 miles (rounded up) .... only about a 300 mile difference if you consider the ECU recording in km and a minor calibration error to the UK set clocks ?

    Potentially a very minor % error in Km to M conversion, so I wouldn't start panicking about having a clocked car just yet.

    the ECU records mileage in kilometers, not miles.

    Just a thought but 33590km is 20825 miles. I know that is slightly different, but are you sure you are not comparing miles to kilometres.

    I really should read all previous posts
