To read the odometer with the ignition off, turn on the
parking lamps.

Thanks to CRS, many times I know there's an answer, but can't remember what it is. That's why I have to look it up in the manual so often.

Having the manuals in electronic form makes it easy to look up words like "odometer."

Being retired makes it easier to multitask and read the forum frequently while you're waiting for inputs to your food basket program.

Or you can just turn on the headlights, look at the miles and turn them back off. You don't even have to sit in the car!

Wow, there's another one of those tidbits that I didn't know after 6.5 years of ownership. Interesting stuff, Jim.

With the M6 you can get everything on the DIC to work by pressing the start button with the clutch out. (engine won't start)
