A family member of mine currently has an E46 316ti. Ya know, the weird ones that we never got in 'Murica.

The the specific vehicle I'm talking about has clear tail lights, orange side markers, and strangest of all it's gauges are in MPH and not KM/H like every other car in Euroland.

I tried to do a little research on it and couldn't find much besides the fact that it was originally registered in Poland. Any ideas why someone in Europe might switch the gauges and side markers to the US version?
