    You just have my interest piqued because the MINI has a digital speed reading and you said you got one in the E90. The Z4 and MINI have the same readout module, but in tbe Z4 it just shows what position the transmission is in. Not much value in that.

    Yeah not really. The only time I think a gear readout is useful is on flappy paddle gearboxes.

    The E90 has a small display between gauges that can cycle through things like distance to empty, average speed/MPG, and if you go deeper, service checks and oil level and such. Coding the digital speedometer simply adds a page to cycle through on the "not so deep" level.

    I spent 5 minutes Googling around and saw some reports of Z4s activating a digital speedo, but one pic showed gauges that looked more like an E90 and less like your car. Wonder if there was another reasonably significant update in the model run. As usual, concrete info is hard to come by in BMW world.

    If this wasn't nearly $400(!!!) I'd consider making my own:



    It's just a digital gauge that reads off of OBDII PIDs.

    This is my cluster:



    If I could get that little "P" in the bottom center to read speed that would be super. There is already an LED indicator on the gear shifter housing itself so that piece is totally redundant unless you're using flappy paddles.

    I've considered getting the VW Golf/GTI version of that, but, I don't really feel the need to monitor my boost (I can check coolant and oil temp already) in an unmodified car, and I've got 1 more set of tires to buy this year.
