Speedometer in miles

Hi,

I have noticed that the speedo does not have any markings for MPH.
Is there a workaround? I find it important to know when travelling in the US the exact speed you are going because state troopers seem to be everywhere.

Multiply the KMH by .6 and you'll be close to actual MPH.

Since you're asking you probably didn't get the HUD, but in case anyone else is interested it's configurable to display miles.

Just do some calculations ahead of time for the common speed limits in mph to kph. This is what I did when I took my old E90 to the US a couple years back since that car had a speedometer that only displayed kph as well.

you can code in a digital speedo that can show mph or km/h based on your settings

Actually if you get a ticket in NY state you should pay it. I thought I didnt need to pay the ticket and they made me turn around at the border and go back. They wouldnt let me cross the border, was a pain in the ass to go all the way to the border and get sent back for not paying a stupid ticket.

My two cents.
