A case could be made, that second/third of more hand cars without service/repair documentation are not likely to display their true mileage.
There is quite a brisk trade in instrument clusters from wrecking yards.

I have about 239,000 on my 90 300SEL. The head was recently redone along with water pump and radiator, I just put new brakes and rotors on the front and also motor mounts and flex disks. Also noticed it has a new master cylinder.

I will be closing in 290 000 by next week!
It's an 1989 560 SEL and the engine runs flawlessly without burning oil or a single leak. Transmission redone as well as the rear differential and of course the notorious hydraulic rear suspension needed to be tended to three years ago. The sunroof is jammed and I am in the process of repairing the guide for the rear passenger window. Not bad for a car that's almost 20 years old. I wonder if newer S classes can achieve what this old geezer can do with reasonable expenses...

You still got that sense of humor.
