If you look at this seller's other auctions, he/she appears to sell other car parts - dash components, mats, etc. One could easily install a speedo/odometer from a wrecked Lexus - with lower mileage in it. I'd be willing to guess that this has happened as opposed to "rolling" the mileage back on the existing odometer. :(

man, if he's selling parts...who is to say its not from the vehicle he is trying to sell you. just sending them out left and right, leaving you with an empty shell of a car that holds nothing more than an odometer that reads as he promised
