Atny286, which dealership did you have the conversion work regarding the instrument cluster done? Maybe it is worth giving them a call to see if they would be willing to swap mine out too.
My dealer also said, it was not possible. Then I told him I would be willing to take shot and have it swapped. My rather small dealer (100km away from my hometown) is not used to having M3 owners as customers... I convinced him to try out. We set the program to Canadian mode and it worked fine. I have had an external GPS and the speedo was not more than 5% off, that's even less than I had on my US Speedo... I can introduce you to him, but as BMW AG does not want local dealer to do this kind of work, I'd like to talk to him first before giving any contact details.
