Can the odometer be change to km count?

Hello everyone, the reason I'm asking is that I'm planning on moving to Vancouver, Canada and would like to take my celica with me. One of their required modifications is:

Metric speedometer and odometer labels

How can the odometer count kilometers as opposed to miles?? Is this something that can be done by myself, or is it a dealership thing???

Thanks!

i would think the computer would have to be reprogrammed. I dont think this is a do-it-yourself mod.

it's not a requirment, my friend bought his car from the states and he drives it in mph and didn't have any problems insuring it.

but i cant remember the site name but they had custom gauge faces and for an extra 5 bucks you could get it in km/h
it was on a recent post.

yeah, you can just put in a gauge face that has the km/h in the big numbers and just remember that the odo and trip are in miles. Simple as that. I'd just check a Canadian Toyota dealer for the gauge face or if you can find an aftermarket one, fo for it cause it will probably be nicer. thumbsup

If you wish I can call my local dealer to see if they have a price on it. Let me know. thumbsup
