Adjusting and calibrating your mileage reading because of technical faults or any other type of error is absolutely legal. However, you would be committing an offence if you didn't disclose the accurate mileage to any potential buyer before your sell the car.

Which cars can have their mileage adjusted? - Mileage adjustments can be made to most modern cars. The correction service varies from each manufacturer. Some cars are corrected by simply connecting a diagnostic cable to the vehicles diagnostic port, while others need the instrument cluster removed to access the microchip. The time varies from 60 minutes to 3 hours on more complex vehicles. Modern cars are generally fitted with electronic dashboards and digital odometers / speedometers to reduce manufacturing costs. However these digital mileage monitors can easily be corrupted (providing a false / inaccurate milage reading) by electrical pulses or spikes that are stored in the vehicle's EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory). This can happen on any type of car, van or bike with a digital mileage display. If you have a newer Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Porsche, Ford, Peugeot or any other make you may have experienced this. This is when digital mileage correction can be the only solution to your problem.

Corruption can happen as a result of the following vehicle issues:

The battery was discharged, car then jump-started. Dashboard incurs electrical faults. Dashboard damage in a collision or through vandalism. Lightening strike induces electrical spikes!

If any of the above happens then the mileage displayed on your digital dash can be inaccurate or totally incorrect, a qualified expert, using the latest specialist equipment, should therefore undertake digital mileage correction to remedy the problem.
