You can change the mileage on any vehicle nowadays, its a huge bizness. Those guys are all from UK on youtube, its tolerated more over there. But yes any current BENZ can be hit, but its tricky. The key box, known as teh EZS holds the base mileage. Thats where u find any tampering. When miles are skeptical on a BENZ u can pop it out easily and look for removed bolts or poor soldering, very easy to spot if you know what ur looking for...

Its illegal here in the Uk and its not tolerated either! The dealer can tell any legitimate person what the real mileage is and after three years the annual vehicle safety and roadworthiness check records the mileage at the central DVLA (your DMV). Its a dumb practice and cheating isn't really that cool is it?

Every time you take your MB into service they record it on there computers. So they know if u tamper with it.
