Help Speedo

I have recently imported a 147 2.0 L 2002 from South Africa to the UK and discovered I need to change the Speedo from KMPH to MPH in order to pass the SVA to get a UK Vehicle Registration (OK, OK, it's easy to be wise after the event!)

Have been quoted around 600 as I need to replace the whole unit BUT someone has told me that it is possible to get the original Speedo amended using a 'stick-on' calibration.

Has anyone done this? Is it a rubbish cheap solution or as good as getting a new speedo? How much did it cost - roughly and without wishing to break any of the posting rules where in the UK can I get it done or how can I find out where to get it done?

Thanks for any help out there -
