    It'll go up from whatever the new clocks have recorded. You can, as fas as i know, get this changed back to what yours was, at a Vauxhall garage, as they'd have to do this if they put new clocks in for whatever reason.

    Vauxhall won't do it for you as the click will have done more than 100 miles, get your new clocks note the old clocks milage, and find someone with op com local to you and they will change it for you, it's the clocks that store the milage not the car

    They will go back to what they were when removed. Mileage is stored within the clocks and not the car. So no way the car could add any on once they are removed.

    As said though anyone with Opcom can alter it.

    they only take seconds to adjust so if u want them just get them - findin sum1 with opcom isnt exactly difficult!

    if ur phased by something as minor as this then im surprised ur even considering fitting them in the first place

    Changing them can be done by opcom in less time than it takes to log onto this site.

    You just need to either get hold of a copy of op com off ebay (Usually about £25 plus postage. Dont let that put you off you can use it for everything on your car. Saves a fortune in diagnostics at a garage or a dealer) Or as already said find someone local who can do it for possably beer tokens!
