Do you also think mileage is always illegal? Or that electronic parts must be always new for repairs? Mistake! Continue reading save for repairs… Many people believe that only new parts from the dealer for a proper repair of vehicle crashes in question come. Particularly in electronic parts, such as the instrument, the expensive faith prevails, that used parts in another vehicle don’t work properly. This is due above all the media hype to the prohibition of the manipulation of the speedometer in the year 2005. One more reason To clean up once with this error: Error number 1 – “mileage is forbidden” the paragraph 22B of the road traffic Act prohibits the possession and the use of speedometer calibration devices for manipulating kilometers stands to fraudulently increase the value of the car for sale.
With this paragraph, the tacho services abroad spread the tale that speedometer adjustments in Germany are in principle prohibited and thus illegal. The devices and their application were but in 2006 of the Federal Constitutional Court for the repair to the speedometer or other electronic modules of vehicles authorised to, because here no fraudulent intent. You can go so peace of mind to the good speedometer service in their region, make these settings to make – when the reason!

The other, much more mundane reasons can sell themselves so long as well! A more frequent case is that an instrument (speedometer, motor control, immobiliser) gives up the ghost and now needs to be replaced for example. Then it is it legitimate to calculate, if 100 + 150 euro for a used speedometer and an adjustment not yet something cheaper comes as 600-1200 euro for a new instrument cluster from the car dealer.
