    Japanese Imports

    Hello Everybody.

    I've got a Japanese import V70 2.5T.
    It's a cracking motor but the speedo is in Km/h, the radio has a limited range in the UK and the fault codes as displayed on the dash are in Japanese!
    I can live with the first two issues, but the last one is concerning.

    Does anyone know of a way to (cheaply) change the operating system language from Japanese to English?

    For info it's a 2005 model, trim level "Ocean Race" Auto Petrol and (although I was assured that it hadn't been tuned - for insurance purposes!) it has metal "BSi" petals and seems very lively compared to a 2005 2.5T I owned a few years ago.

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Probably will need a main dealer software flash I'm guessing, not sure this is switchable in vida, look on the FB vida dice owners page or vida dice diagnostics help and advice, hope that helps.
