    Mileage wont be correct, the clocks will read the mileage of the vehicle the clocks came from and not yours. You can get it reprogrammed.

    The red line is in the wrong place on the rev counter (compare with the one you removed). Also check the speedo is reading the correct speed, I once tried swapping my clocks as our Astra has just speedo and guages (no rev counter), the speedo was well out on the replacement so ended up swapping them back.
