If you don't have the Alt. option in the MFI, then you have to recode your Instrument Cluster control module's country code to Europe. Then you should have this option. Also, if you set the country code to US or UK, all your units should charge accordingly (however, you'll still be able to change back to kms in the MFI Units menu, as described previously).
I'm not sure about the US country setting, but the UK setting definitely hides the Alt. speed display setting. The country settings might also affect other behavior , like the warnings (chimes) for seatbelts when turning the ignition on.
And of course don't forget to write down your original coding value, so you'll be able to restore it to whatever is was, in case something goes wrong.
