    hi guys
    my 99T w202 c200 espirit has the normal black dials, i hear the white dials from the sport version will swap straight in. im wanting to keep the mileage the same so ideally just the white card insert will do?

    anything i need to watch out for and anyone got any sport dials for sale?
    thanks

    Would it not be easier just to change the whole cluster and have the mileage of the new sport cluster set to your mileage :dk:

    flanaia1, how would i go about adjusting the mileage to match my current mileage. is this done before the speedo is replaced or after? surely just changing the card/insert is easier right? also, my clock has max 140mph, im wanting 160 on the new dials, am i just being greedy or is it possible?

    You will need to swap the clusters over and then get mileage correction done via STAR.

    STAR is the diagnosis system software used by MB specialists (whether independents or actual dealerships) to check faults and also to change functions of certain ECU's on the vehicle (depends on model).
