Okay I have a weird question. I am looking for a used 98 m3 sedan. I have noticed that the computer under the temp controls has diffrent versions. The reason I say this is some have more buttons then others. Is this just a tripometer ? And if so are the two versions ? whats the diffrence in the two ?

Thanks in advance

Good question...i'm also wondering about this. My m3 has very limited controls there. How do you get the whole deal?

Like mpg, average speed, shit like that.

Some are merely clocks, while others are OBC's (onboard computer). Check control messages are displayed there on some.

The simpler version you will see has the basics, clock, outside temp, system check etc. The our advanced OBC was a $500.00 option in '98 and '99. It will include avg miles per hour, avg fuel consumption, miles to empty, time to destination etc. The option was called On Board Computer. BR

You'll be too busy driving to worry about buttons. Other wise you maybe need another car.
