2001 has digital odometer that can not be rolled back.
I guess a genius could reset the software, but I haven't hear about one.
In US we do have Carfax, that makes records with mileage available to the owner. This way you can observe how mileage have changes between the years, making it pretty hard to cheat.

thank you for your reply kajtek1
the car has been imported from italy so it has been in italy since the date it was produced , so i don't know the system in italy if they record the milage in maintenace , but if you are sure that there are no way for 2001 c320 to rool back the odometer then i can feel happy that i can trust the odometer reading .
thnx again for your reply

Russia....
Former Eastern Block has lot of highly educated and skilled people who work for pennies, so hacking software to gain couple of dollars is pretty common.
Italy is different story as skilled people can make decent wages there legally,.
So it is constant war between programmers working for the company and hackers who will try to break the system security.
No guarantee your car is not reset, but I would think about it unlikely.
Other way to determinate mileage is observing pedal pads wear out.
You paid for the car already, right?
Why don't you enjoy it instead beating your head against the wall?
