    Yes, but it requires BMW diagnostic computer

    After a few years of having mine in celsius, I had mine changed to fahrenheit while my car was at Turner Motorsport having some work done. They have a BMW GT-1 diagnostic computer. Any dealership can do it, but I'd try to find an independant mechanic in your area that has either a BMW MoDiC II/III or GT1 system. The stealership will charge $100+ just to do this electronic setting change. Turner did it free, as I was having other work done, which was cool of them.

    I suppose another option would be to buy a "new" climte control computer ($250), as they come in the default programming of celsius (that's why mine was in C for years). Obviously not an efficient use of funds though. Because the default setting is celsius, I'm sure there are many people out there who'd consider trading units so there's read an F and yours read in C.

    And if you have Celsius displayed by the Climate Control Unit...

    then set it for 23 and leave it.

    I had a flakey CCU that would work only part of the time, in a 1997 E36 (328i). Found a used, working model from Canada on Ebay
    for $72USD, and it was set for celsius. Normallized celsius in the range of 70-80F are from 21-27C.
