"Gear Shift Point Display" (gear figure + arrows in the right hand corner of the first line of the info display of the OBC) indicates the best gear to use for optimum economy. Part of the BMW EfficientDynamics Intelligent Energy Management System. To make GSPD appear/disappear: press the OBC button on the turn indicator lever for ± 3 seconds. Not on US spec.

Official info about "Gear Shift Indicator":

To me it rather seems a feature which is appropriate for a 118d than a 1M.
