Onboard Computer Settings

Hi, Just bought a 99 M3 convertible
I'm setting the date and time. Problem is, it only shows European style date.
Day/month, instead of month/day.
Any way to change that setting so it shows month/day?

Owners manuals were no help.

Trying to set my OBC date, and it will only display day/month, not month/day.
Is there a way to change this?

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've merged your two threads into the E36 forum. Someone in here has to know the answer to this. My guess is there is no way to flip the format.

Get the date displayed, then hit the km/mls button.

Yup,

I found that on the 5er bulletin boards.
When I went to set the clock, or the date, I hit the C/F degree button
I don't have a KM/Mls button.

Thanks All!
