Perhaps you should ask a used car dealer!

I believe it can be done but only a few people know how, and would unlikely be willing to spread the knowledge for obvious reasons. Suggest you contact one of the specialists.

Back in the day I recall dealers being prosecuted for using drills to wind back speedos, I doubt that would work on digital speedos.

You could always try reversing for 81k miles? By which time you will have done 175k.....

Using a drill to wind back (or forwards) tends to melt the internal plastic gears after a while. Ask me how I know...

It's all becoming clear, wait for Brexit, sneak off to Germany and live off the proceeds of your sordid autobiography!
Don't forget Interpol!

I'll leave it up to Interpol or the German police to wind him in for his past misdemeanours!
