Got the car on Thursday and the time on the clock was correct.

Drove to work Friday and the clock was six minutes behind.

Reset the clock Saturday.

Drove to work this morning and the clock was six minutes behind.

Is the clock somehow controled by the GPS for BMW Assist or something?!? Otherwise what's up with my clock?!????!??

(Is that enough punctuation for y'all?)

I had to glance twice at the thread title.

Yeah, don't just bring your clock to some person in a dark place in the city to have it serviced, go to the dealer.

He should be extra careful since he lives in West Hollywood.

There was a thread on the E39 section I think in March or April where a driver found his clock losing time for only certain models made during certain time periods.

He posted the BMW TSB which showed a hidden warranty on the clock cpu IIRC.

Check it out.

It is very annoying now that you mention it. I've only had to reset the time once so far. But I'm going to keep my eye on it now.

Apparently, it is my stupidity, not a problem, per se.

What seems to have happened is that I did not push and hold the right tuner knob after resetting the clock, so when the engine started again, it was as if the clock were never reset.

That said, I have not had the problem since...:crossfingers:
