You can change your onboard computer settings, so they will show the speed, distance, mileage, weather etc, in euro or U.S conversion. Yeah, but you can't mess with the odometer. Thats is illegal and completely moronic.
I found the issue. Whereas I thought that all BMWs had imperial AND metric in the cluster, that is not that case. My particular 1997 328i is purely a metric machine when it comes to the speedometer, and the odometer. OBC still translates to imperial, but not the cluster.
So that's my answer. That's all I was looking for.
