You can keep the MPG gauge that is normally displayed

Anyone got an idea on how to change the ECO pro gauge from blank blue to MPG gauge like how this guy is talking about?

I dug into the settings and no luck.

Also, do we have a "BKM" (best known method) for lowering the headrests all the way down?

You're probably in the same boat as us North Americans then. It just doesn't work. I'm hoping that eventually there'll be a mod to do this.

Nice find. So they made the part with the button on the wrong side then?

This is really stupid I think. I can make my windows go up and down by pressing the lock button in my 2002 E46 and 2003 E53. How come they make such a mistake in 2012 ? Unbelievable. Hope it can be fixed with a software upgrade or smt.

Except I don't think it's a mistake, I think it's intentional. Someone suggested it might be due to litigation concerns.

Does anyone know if you can put anything in the first digital-display under the first gauge (speedometer) like the second one? Or is that a RTFM? haha

No. There is no screen under that. It is just empty. Wish there was a screen there as well.

Confirmed. This works...I love it. It says "ECO Pro" but the gauge is now MPG rather than that dumbed down blue gauge. Thanks!

Comfort Access hands-free trunk opening

When the car is unlocked, stand near center of trunk. Move foot under rear bumper and immediately pull it back. Trunk opens. Took me a few tries to get this to work every time. My salesman showed me this at delivery last week.
Amaze your friends!
It is in the manual.
Best

Does the heads up display show street name (in navigation) or just turn left/right in 50m?
