    Changing from kilometres to mph

    Please help me as my car is in kilometres instead of miles and I can't work it out or find in the book how to change it!

    I could go to the dealer but don't want to look like a dizzy blonde! Lol!

    please help!

    Press menu, then top right button for 'setup MMI'. You can then scroll down to units and change to mph. Took me ages to find too

    You can change the dis to mph on the new golfs that only show mph on dials & kmh in dis, with some vcds trickery involving setting the cluster to rest of world, doing a dis reset & then enabling something in the dis, cant remember of the top of my head, but it has been done to a clients friends car when I was on a job.
