speedometer set to MPH

Is there anyway to set the instrument cluster where the MPH is displayed instead of the cars mileage?

As above.

Now...don't be afraid to use those buttons on your steering wheel...that's what they're for...and you'll discover other useful things.

I guess I should clarify. Is there anyway to set the numerical setting on the speedometer as home? I prefer using the digital over the analog but each time I exit the vehicle and return it resets to analog. I'm looking for a solution that would keep the numbers displayed on the speedometer with out having to redo them each time I get in the vehicle. Thank you.

That is more clear. I don't think this can be done by you...nor by the garage.

There is different land coding which defines some of the display options, for example fuel remain in tank as a litres is not shown in all cars. Those options can be set via star diagnose.

If you want your car to display mph in digital format..the 210 doesn't do that.
The 211 does.

My 2002 e430 W210 will display MPH in digital format (instructions from manual above). The problem is that we have been unable to set it as the default readout. The menu must be used to display it each time the car is restarted.

I don't know if that can be set as the default or not. I like that feature too and it's only a couple of presses to get there.
