I have done a search, and can't seem to find the post about setting the OBC, date and time. I remember someone posting it from a manual, does anyone remember?

Thanx

Larry... Just go to the function you want to change (Time), then press in the little hidden button with a pen, and then use the 1000/100/10/1 buttons to set the time, then press in that little hidden button again. Change the OBC to date, press in the hidden button....

Yes, it's BMW's equivalent of Staples' Easy Button Wink!

BTW... If you're set to something other than US measures, that clock works as 24 hours!
