Here's how to set your clock:

In an effort to prevent several threads from asking the same damn question, here's the procedure (non Nav).

Turn on car
Select the clock on the OBC
Turn the right stick in the gauge cluster

Or, people could read how to do it their vehicle's owners manual. No one ever reads that thing.

^Open the trunk and pour it in there. Be sure to light up a cigarette while you're doing that too.


On a side note, I DID have to read the manual the first time I went to fill up. I couldn't figure out how to open up the flap to get to the gas cap. So there I was in Galveston, TX with a brand new 2002 BMW 330ci sitting at a gas station reading the f-ing manual.

Damn Russ, you're too nice. Here's what I would've said:

1. READ THE FVCKING MANUAL!!!!!!

If you don't have a manual all you have to do is join BMW Owners Circle, enter your car info, go to Owner's Information -> Owner's Manual, and download it.

Once you are in "clock setting mode". press the same button to switch between 12 and 24 hour modes.

Maybe the mods can make this thread sticky.

I don't see why you shouldn't have a manual. Personally, I'd be wary of buying a used car without one. If the owner can't hold onto the manual and other books, who's to say they waxed and washed the car with any regularity, or even had it serviced?

If someone has to ask how to set the clock, do you think someone is going to ask, " How do you select the clock on the OBC?" or "What is the OBC?"

Anyone know WHERE the clock unit is on NAV cars? Is it in the head unit or in the box that the head unit connects to in the trunk? I want to remove the head unit (navigation, 2000 328Ci), but I want to make sure the clock can still be displayed in the OBC.
