    i have just purchased a s320l (w220) 2002 with full history and one owner from new,90,000 miles with keyless go /soft closing doors ect.
    the question is this; the milometer reads in miles but the speedo reeds in km.
    can't seem to change it in settings can only change the milometer .
    could do with some advice on this from you guys as i can't drive around not knowing my speed.
    as far as i know it is not an import.
    can't ask the previous owner as he past away before i bought the car.
    i could also do with kowing how to use the solar panel that has come with the car with a big scary type plug on the end.
    thanks in advance derek3024

    Hello & welcome.

    It is UK law that speed must be shown in mph and kmh. Dial only vehicles have the two but MB show the kmh in the 'window'.

    Would the solar charger plug into the OBD port (used to read diagnostics)? Some do.

    speedo read out

    are you saying that i have to put up with the speedo displaying in km and it can't be changed to display mph?
    plug on solar panel reads "obd11" looks like a scart plug

    come on guys someone must be able to shed some light on this
    hopefully its not a visit to the dealers ££££s
    ps.
