I have a chance to buy a recovered theft 95 850 turbo wagon for dirt cheap. But the instument cluster is missing, can the dealer pull this info out of the ecu?

No is the answer to that - the cluster has the mileage as part of the solid state lump.<P>It's also very expensive to replace - over £500 in the UK, plus the labour of removing the top of the facia to get to it.<P>I hope this vehicle IS dirt cheap, because you're going to be spending a lot of money sorting out the suspension, box, bodywork and interior, all of which I bet are well and truly shagged due to the sods who nicked it.<P>I'd also have the shell checked for cracks and warps - if it needs a jig, I really would walk away since it'll be a deathtrap.<P>I just hope it never happens to mine.

ya, good luck 2deedge, it looks like you're on the edge right now! I hope the car works out of ryou, and you get lucky. These cars can get VERY, VERY expensive, and it's usually a lot of little things you have to do, not one big thing. <P>GOOD LUCK!<P>

Do you mean recovered in that it was taken from the owner due to non-payment, or recovered as in wrecked and bought for parts...<P>Prospero
