We should add that it's a calculated mileage also. If you start the car and drive without it being warm, it adds more... Meaning cold mileage is tallied faster. An actual cold mile may be tallied as up to 4 miles in regards to the oil.

Hey, that reminds me, 320what did you ever get your OBC off German? I think you can change it by unlocking it, I changed mine from English to German. (And back again...I can't read German but it was fun anyways lol)
