I'm new to the forum so if I'm posting this in the wrong place let me know.
I have a 1997 Cooper MPI I bought from an importer last April. I want to change the dials over to miles instead of kilometers and am changing the complete dash to split out the different gauges with separate Smiths Dials.
Could someone tell me if there's a 'correct' way to change the dials i.e. if I buy a new speedo do I somehow have to up the mileage on it so it reflects the km's already done on the car? Are there any legalities to it? Also does anyone know if the connectors in the back of MPI dials fit directly to the back of Smiths Dials?
I have done some googling and digging on here to try and find the answers but cant find anything definitive. Would rather know before I take the dash off!
Any help or pointers to previous discussions will be appreciated.
