Miles to Kilmometers

Just purchased a 2008 328i Convertible from the US and importing into British coilumbia. Can some one please help me on the steps to change the digital odemeter reading into Kilometes rather than miles.

Thanks in advance to all replies....

I believe that for that you will need to swap out instrument clusters. If ever you sell the car, this would obviously need to be disclosed. If you're technically proficient, it would be possible, but I'm not sure it would really be worth it though.

You didnt specify if your car has i-drive.
If it does,go to Menu,Settings and change it there itself.No need to go to the dealer.
My 335i LCI is a UK import and i changed the readings from Miles to Kilometres thru the i-drive menu.

In the professional audio you can go to settings and switch whatever you like as well, km or miles, gallons or liters, Celsius or Fahrenheit etc. But my Canadian car has km/h on the spedo and lt/100km under the tac.
