Need to change from miles to km

Hello everyone!

I have a 2005 C230 – and since I have to move it with me to a Europe. I need to change from miles to km.

So I was wandering if anyone out there that knows

A) What is needed to completely change from miles meters to km, including the meters? Has anyone done this, and know how much I need to replace and the cost involved?

B) When I go through the setup in the car-computer, and change from miles to km, the only thing that happens is that the speed is still showed on miles but this time with km sign. (did try it by using a hand-held GPS system and compared the speed of my system with the speed indicator in the car – and it did show that even if the speed in the car was with km sign it was miles). Has anyone seen this?

I would be grateful if anyone can help.

You can change the digital readout to register in km with the steering wheel buttons. You would have to change the entire instument cluster and have it programmed to get the analog portion correct.

I don't think you need to change the entire instument cluster, just the faces on the instruments. Not 100% certain though. Also check into changing the country setting with the diagnostic computer. A competent MB tech can do it. He will need to access the menu for the rear SAM.
