    Default mileage wiped on evo

    ok not its a vectra but .....
    I took my m8s evo 8 into sg-petch middlesbrough becuase the speedo would occasionally stick when accelerating hard.

    when I picked it up and they said theyd fitted new clocks, when i got in the car the mileage was 9mile! so i went back in and questioned it and got told that they are not allowed to adjust the mileage, so its got to start at zero again .... surely this aint right, it had ni on 20k on it, i'm sure if he came to sell it the buyer would be seriously concerned when the service history says 20k.

    i took the car back to me m8 and hes seriously not impressed, and wants the mileage back to what it was understandably, but how can / were can he get this done?

    cheers

    edit: can someone change title to mileage as i spelled it wrong

    I bought a 2nd hand Mg a few years ago, low mileage it was. When I got it home I checked the service book and it ahd more miles than the car on it. Went back to the dealer and was told the sameish story. Kicked up hell about being misinformed of the mileage and was offered a refund. It was replaced at 1500 miles so I wanted to keep the car and settled for some mats and an upgraded stereo from them. They also put it in the service book like they had "forgotten" to do ...
