    When you set it correctly it then picks up about 5 minutes?

    Does it stop there or keep gaining time?

    Is yours an R50 / R53? My MINI had a fast clock when I bought it too. It was replaced under warranty. The whole speedo was replaced, because the clock is built into it.

    He probably got the "S" version, it's built to run a little faster....:D

    I have this issue and I just just reset my clock once a month.

    No big deal.

    I have one of those too. It's an hour slow right now. Can't seem to figure out why. :D

    Doesn't the German government require that they set them up 5 minutess fast so no one's clock will be reading slow?



    Just like our speedometers? :D

    Years ago I had a supervisor tell me he slapped his mickey twice before he got up. It me a minute or two to figure out he was talking about his mickey mouse alarm clock.
