Speedo change

Hi new to the fourm have a 2002 cooper which has a speedo reading nearly 10mph out . I am going to change the speedo for a ebay buy , will the mileage switch over to new speedo and does the new speedo need any coding etc to work .

If your speedo is reading high, that's normal for Minis. Indicated speed typically up to 10% faster than true speed is about usual, so 10mph is more than that. You shouldn't be surprised if the replacement speedo is exactly the same.

My speedo needle sits at 6 o'clock not at 0 mph and when doing 10mph on my speedo I'm doing 20mph . Not good want to get it sorted before I get a speeding ticket .
