Change speedometer display from miles to Kilometers

I recently purchased an '06 CLK in the UK and imported it to Ireland. I managed to reset the digital speed and distance displays to Km/h but cannot find a way of changing the analogue speed (needle) display to Km/h.

I seem to remember being told that the Mercedes speedometers could easily be adjusted to displaying Km/h or Miles/hour. Can anyone confirm this and if it is possible provide instructions on changing the display.

Thanks for your time....

On my M-B in the USA my analog speedometer shows miles/hour as large numbers, and kilometers/hour as small ones. It sounds like you already tackled the hard part by changing the digital displays.

Good luck, and welcome to the forum!

I had dealer in the US change the analog speedo using Star to km/hr -- or so I thought. I've imported the C230 to Canada and I now realize that the analog speedo is still reading mph. I can get the digital to show km/hr -- it shows the words km/hr but in fact it's tracking the analog speed which is mph. I know this is confusing. Any ideas?

I've imported US ML in Europe and the analog speedometer was in mph. I went to the Merc dealer here so they changed it that when I'm driving with 100 km/h the analog speedometer is showing "100" not "60". (100 km/h is around 60 mph). And in the center it doesn't say "mph" - it's now "km/h". It's like I have analog speedometer for km/h but it's only going to 160.
