How do you change the time in a BMW 1 Series?

Can you tell me how to change the time in my new BMW 1 Series from 2011? My parents got me one for my birthday and I’m trying to change all of the settings, but I can’t find the controls for the clock.

Getting a new car is always exciting, but sometimes it can be tricky to learn the new controls. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to change the time in a BMW 1 Series once you know how to do it by following these steps:
  1. Turn on your car.
  2. Use the buttons on the end of the turn signal stalk to find the item labeled Set Time on your display.
  3. Push the button labeled BC, located on your turn signal stalk.
  4. Push on the turn signal stalk to change the time, then press the BC button again.
  5. Use the turn signal stalk to change the minutes, then press BC.
  6. To return to the main settings menu, press the BC button. You’re all done!
