Canadian Speedometer

Do the Canadian model e90s show both KMs and Miles, or just KMs? (Hoping it has the mph inset in the smaller font, since I drive down to the US a fair bit).

Thumbs down



That is pretty lame... all North American cars should have both imo...

Can you at least set the digital readout to display current speed in mph ?

I do not drive to the US very often but a quick approximate conversion is 60mph=100kmh, 30mph=50kmh, and 50mph=80kmh.

Is that not good enough and easy enough to remember? At least this way the speedometer gauge is kept neater and cleaner looking.

Yah its not like I can't do the conversion in my head (which is what I will be doing now), I am just used to being lazy since every car I have ever owned has shown both. I noticed the US models show both km and mph, so I am just a bit surprised ours don't.

Thanks
