    I believe that this is something that the dealer has to change.

    Same here. I never did prefer units which had no apparent relation to the quantity being measured. Pounds per square inch is more intuitive than bars when it comes to pressure, and pounds or kilograms make more sense than slugs. :D

    My RS (in the USA) displayed bar as delivered; my dealer changed it to read psi upon my request. I had this done during scheduled maintenance.

    When I was young I worried about moving from A/F and Whitworth spanners (wrenches for some of you folks) to Metric.

    I survived. And even came to enjoy the simplicity of real numbers :)
