Service dept is gonna love this extra workflow. Having to tap a few extra settings in order to see the car's mileage when you bring the car in for work.

I went looking for it this morning. Only way to display the odometer is the trip display. Shift indicator is also off to the right instead of center. Takes some getting used too.

When you think about it, the shift indicator really isn't necessary at all. When was the last time you needed to see which "gear" you were in?

When I'm in a hurry and accidentally (Ok, on purpose, because ->I'm in a HURRY!<-) press the stalk twice instead of once to get it into drive and wonder why the car is not moving! :)

Three-point turns. Many times reverse doesn't engage if I am going too fast and the indicator is the fastest way to see save pressing the go-pedal and hitting the curb. And before you say it, I keep my rear camera on at all times, so it takes more time and mental energy to see the white lines suddenly appear than looking at the gear indicator on the instrument cluster.

Service department doesn't actually look at the odometer...

I came in to buy a Chademo, service never touched my car. On the printed receipt they had my exact mileage.

If you put the trip display on the dash you can see it there. Other than there don't know where else.

Note that this is only true on AP cars. The trip display on non-AP cars doesn't show it. This is probably as it would be redundant when the car is started but there are all sorts of UI things here.
