A\C Temp Display

I have a '99 base Boxster.
I'd like to change the temp display from centigrade to farenheit.
Does anybody know how to do it, or is it even possible?

Thanks for any help or comment,

Tim

Just hold down the recirc and the temperature + button and it changes F to C. Press it again to change back.

What happens when you hold down the recirc button, press the center vent button, and say while turning your head slightly to the left "I (fill in the blank) my Boxster?"

I'm sure the dealership charges 200 dollars for the job.

I want the laser, but I think you need the OBC.

Gentlemen,
thank you all for your help. it worked as suggested. I knew had to be some combo of button presses and that one was the only one I didn't do.

as I write this the Carolina panthers have opened a can of whup-a** on seattle....
sorry to all you Seattle fans ...
