According to Modification And Inspection Requirements,there is a modification about

Metric speedometer and odometer labels (provided by inspection centre)

what RIV wants for this requirement. Do they want us to convert dual English/metric speedometer to single metric speedometer.
Thanks

I think it's just if it doesn't have any KMs at all ... both my US M3 still have the OE clusters with mph bigger

I recently purchased a US E61 Touring. The cluster is still the original one of the car. It also has the MPH on the outer edge. The rule applies for vehicles that don't have km's listed on the gauge unless it has the ability to switch over electrically.

bmw's are fine for this. They have both km and miles listed.....

All they do at the dealer is change the digital part into KM and the temp....

I Canadian federalized my USDM car in Q3 2008 with MPH on the outer ring and KPH on the inner ring. No issues.

@hustler and pawcio : your cars are US, aren't they?

I kind of liked having the km/h on the inner portion. It let me set the steering wheel lower...

To clarify, I had a US cluster on a CDN car. Not a US car though I'm tempted to trade in my 540i for an M this summer for something stateside. The prices are still amazing.
