    Does anyone know if it's possible to recalibrate the fuel consumption read out on the trip computer on this model, perhaps through a hidden menu? Measuring fill-up to fill-up on the same pump, it's always about 0.4l/100km under-reading...
    On my old 1995 E34 BMW, it was possible to calibrate this quite easily - have things gone back with the advance of technology???

    I've asked this question of dealers at service time before, and it appears the answer is no.

    Oh well, worth a shot - a bit annoying though as it's something that's easy to get right.

    Happy New Year!
