Need Help: Odometer Question

Hello All,
I have a question for anyone who may have had this problem or may know some information. My odometer starting flashing between KM and Miles and quit working all together. I purchased a new one and installed it and of course my D90 went from the previouse 33,000 miles to 0 miles. It now has 10 miles on it since we replaced the odometer. My question is this: when i get it inspected or anything else that may come up, whats going to happen since my odometer is reading different than the carfax report or anything else. Obviously, I shouldn't get in any trouble for this but will the odometer ever be up to date or do I have to do the addition everytime i want to figure out the mileage on my D90

I first thought that once they plugged it up to teh computer it would update the odometer or something.
Has anyone done this or know how I should go about the process of inspecting it. I feel sure that the DMV computer will show the original mileage of about 33,000 but im not sure.

I replaced the speedo on my old pickup and had to have a sticker with the original mileage on the inside of the door. I had to add the two together to get the true miles. No big deal really.

You can use a pulse generator to bring the new unit up to the correct reading.

Or just live with the fact that your car will be branded as having had the speedo tampered with. If you have the documentation showing you replaced with a new one, any potential buyers shouldnt flip out too bad.

better yet, put in a new engine and have a legitimate excuse for the new odometer reading
