Trip meter RESTORE

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi guys
It's just my enjoyment, I keep the the trip meter on instrument cluster has same number as odometer (never press reset button)

I just realised someone reseted it (not sure SA or repair guy)

I'm annoyed and want that number back.

Is it possible? How can I do it.
Thanks

If they update the car software, the tripmeter value is gone.

I remember trying to keep them the same for some of my previous cars. Never really worked out though as they eventually got reset. Now I reset it every time I fill up or just before taking long trips.

How do you set it to auto reset? And is this every time you fill up gas?

It's at the bottom of the journey computer screen, check box for "reset automatically"

It resets after 4 hours of the car not being used. This can be adjusted by coding though.

My E36 used to have 2 trip meters. I left one alone for the life of the car and the other I'd reset whenever I needed to track the stats. They never reset during service. It's too bad BMW took that feature away after that generation.

My Jetta had that and it was great.

Thanks, will check it out. I wish there was a setting to select the time-to-reset without coding.
