have you read the instruction manual?.............should tell you how to convert it to miles.........tho i would have thought if the speedo/odometer are showing miles then the OBC would also be the same..........could possibly be a fault..........worth maybe taking it past yer local OPC to ask them if they have any idea

the older 993 ones are either kph or mph - depending which market were sold to (i have replaced mine with a mph)

think (not too sure) but the newer generations of porkas can be converted? OPC should be able to assist i would have thought?

Hi Ross

If its a 996 model, you can interchange between the two via the OBC stalk. The manual shows how

postamble();
Ross,

To change beween MPH and KPH you twist and turn one of the buttons above the dials on the dash (i.e. the trip reset and illumination control). I'm sorry I can't remember off the top of my head which one it is (or which way you twist and hold the button), but have a go and you'll change it. (you've a 25% chance of getting it right first time!)

Of course, yes, you could have a look at the manual as well...

Marc
