Unhappy Should I return my Defi HUD?

Just recieved my Defi Sports VSD Heads Up Display today!
Then I found out it only reads Km/h!!!
Should I return it for a VSD II which reads Mph, but isn't as cool or should I finally be one of the first Americans to learn the metric system?
Here's the website for the two units:http://www.defi-shop.com.

Nah, metric is fun! I now have the STi dash cluster, and will have to live with

A) kph instead of mph
B) a tach that goes to 10k rpms that I can only use 60% of

Are you absolutely sure you can not switch between Kph and Mph? I thought I read on the Defi website that you can switch read out modes. Just thought I'd mention it. Good luck.

Default Nope, no Imperials!

I had made the same mistake. The Defi VSD II is the one that can read mph. The Sports is only kmph.
I've decided to keep it since:
-I had paid about $15 shipping
-I will have to pay shipping again to return it and
-Titanmotorsports said that I would have to pay a 20% restock fee!
Total cost to return = $60 !!!
Guess the poll and the cost has made my decision...metrics, here I come!

I have the boost HUD and I had a similar surprise to yours since
it reads in kg/cm2 not PSI. But I don't mind it at all now since I'm used to it and can read it as fraction of max boost.
