Mr745i, I assume you followed Nygel's advice and just swapped the electronics from your original cluster into the US Spec MPH cluster?

All of you KOMBI information will be retained and no programming needed.
hope this helps
Nygel, any idea if just overwriting the VIN in the used cluster (via NSCExpert) is sufficient for it to take over the Odometer reading stored in the CAS module? I am assuming the Odometer reading in the CAS is greater than that stored in the used cluster.

The training PDF in the DIY section has the following statement:
"Note: In the case of a used instrument cluster (vehicle identification number is entered), the vehicle identification number can be overwritten up to a kilometer reading of 254 km (158mi). A reset of the permanently stored mileage reading is not possible."

But often I find limitations listed in the training literature are just limitations of DIS and Progman.
