Hi Michel,

I had a similar dilemma when I had to convert my mph to km/h unit some time back. I simply replaced the face with a new one from. SNG. The odometer still reads in miles but shows the actual mileage of the car, whilst the speed reads in km/h. I calibrated the unit with a sat nav, simply moving the needle around to be accurate at the most common speed and I can change back if ever I want to.

The km/h face is currently £66 inc. VAT at SNG if that helps. It’s an easy change.

Regards,

driving mine in both europe and the UK I really wish there was a dual mph/kph dial - and no, I'm not putting little stickers and markers on it!

Hi Michel,

I worked with "Speedograph" and the work was really great !
Internal and face in KM/h.
The cost is arround 200£ depending of the work and the state of your original speedo.
With the radars we have, it's better to be at the right speed now
