I understand how inconvenient that can be; it’s happened to me before!
Here’s how to change the clock on your BMW Series 3:
  • Go to the main iDrive screen
  • Select Settings
  • Select Time & Date
  • Scroll to the time and press the iDrive controller; the hour digit should turn red
  • Rotate the iDrive controller around to change the time to the correct hour
  • Press down on the iDrive controller to confirm
  • Repeat steps 5-6 to change the minutes to the right time
That’s it! It’s simple to change your clock if you know what to do.
