Metric-->Imperial conversion

Hi all,
I just bought a '98 540i that was from Canada originally, and of course all the gauges/displays are Metric. I am pretty sure that I will get the dealer to do a conversion on the speedometer/tach soon, but in the meantime is there a simple way to get the temp display, trip computer, etc to change?

Thanks in advance

i think you can mess up with your OBC to display your speed in mi/hr
likewise with temp, there's an easy way of doing it and i'm pretty sure it was covered in an earlier thread, but i forgot how to do it myself
