LCI2 new dash - lights on - lights off

Post by Paul CS » Sun Sep 24, 2017 9:56 pm

Took some pics today after cleaning the car and took a picture (with a proper camera) of the dash with lights on then off. Then found myself flicking between the two on the laptop. Anyway, thought I'd make a little video and share. Here you go...

I do like the new dash.

Nope. I prefer my grey M2 dials that you can’t read in the sunshine

So they've strayed from the orange interior lighting now too?

Still no digital speedo though, right?

Yes there is a digital speedo. It's great.

So is the cluster now completely digital? No analogue needles?

And more importantly - does this mean it now illuminates properly all the time? And that you don't get that incredibly annoying period in the evening where the gauges are lit in amber and the black panel display below is lit in white?

If so, I'd seriously think about fitting one of these to my LCI, as the instrument panel lighting is the worst thing about the car...

No, not really digital just nicely backlit stencils. It is not a full LCD display like in Audi's a Mercs.

The needles go amber at night. Have a look at this...

Regarding retrofit, no idea if that is possible.
