Do you mean the Menu when you hold down the rest button and have to enter in a code (the sum of the last 5 digits of your vin)?

You can re calibrate your mpg through this menu

I would think the sum, if your posted VIN is right, would be 32 of the last five digits...
Mine works fine, with that. I mean the sum of the last five digits that is for entering in the menu.

This thread should give you what you want.... http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...603&highlight= .... In the video he says to add the last 7 digits of the VIN, but I believe it is actually the last 5 digits, so as Sophisto says your code should be 32. I adjusted my mpg calibration, and it is right on the money now.

Start with #1 and try them all. With my vin is supposed to be 18 and for some reason is 12. Off course I started going one by one after 19 so it took me a while to find out that it was #12.
