No Tire pressure display?

Was curious about the cars tire pressure on our new 750li just to discover that all I can get is an idiotic image showing me four green tires. Really?

I can't have the tire pressure and/or temperature in a US car? Per manual, this privilege appears to be reserved to Canadian cars.

Is there a way to enable that? I like that on the Mercedes especially as I use a higher tire pressure than the stock wheels.

Thanks

Wolfman

Very cool.

Lots of options I like to enable, but it looks like it's a bit more hand-on than I prefer. I assume that no dealer would enable these? Strictly do-it-yourself?

Wow, didn't know we can enable so many things. Now if I can only find someone to have it done in my car.

If there is anyone doing this in Minneapolis, I am game!

Hate to see that one has to jumps through hoops just to get what Mercedes has enabled by default...

Even my Chevrolet Impala rental car gave the PSI per tire. Annoying that the beamer doesn't. I keep my tires at 36 front / 38 rear all of the time and I think it definitely makes a difference in tire wear. I'm close to 15k and they are still looking about halfway worn. Would be alot easier to see the pressure on the dash than have to measure them periodically with a gauge.
