E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

BMW 1 series - mileage clock went back by 5K miles


My battery got discharged when I left car unused for 5 days. After the jump start, it is back to normal running but the mileage clock has gone 5 K miles backwards - from 65K to 59K. does anyone have any clue ? Can using the 2nd key just before jumpstarting reset the mileage to previous know mileage to that key?

I'm not sure which side of the pond you're on, but at least on the US side, nothing should ever modify the odometer other than normal driving. If something does happen then the mileage is (or by law should be) forever after flagged as "unverifiable" for registration and titling purposes.

AShk89, this is strange, I'm sure someone must be able to contribute to this ... Does the second key fob have a memory of its own? Has the milage clock misbehaved again since that event?
