Forgive me, please, if this steps on anyone's toes, but IMHO the openometer is among the stupidest, if not the stupidest waste of dashboard space, ever. My Mini arrives tomorrow (yes, I know: pictures will be forthcoming--I'll bring the laptop and camera with me to the dealer so I can post without even needing to return home or get out of the car) and my brain has been chugging for the last several months trying to come up with alternatives. I've got ideas and my wife, a sculptor, is in a position to implement them. Gotta cover that embarrassment up. I'll share once we have something in place. But I'm curious if anyone else has done anything interesting to/with their openometers. And if you love your openometer, well, I promise not to judge (out loud). It's your car and you have every right to love everything about it.
