I thought the US clusters show miles in big and km's little?

I drove a US 325i once, so that's why.

Hey guys, yes, the cluster shows both, primary Miles Per Hour and small KM Per Hour. What I need is the digital odometer readout to be switched back to Miles. The odometer is actually a seperate unit and is controlled by the computer, so I think it's just flipping the display preference somewhere in the computer.

If anyone knows a way for me to switch that at home... that would be great!

P.S. Hitting the US/Metric toggle switch on the center dash computer only affects those displays, not the odometer.

Pretty sure you have to take it to the dealer and have them do it because I believe it requires a special tool
