Question Is it weird how...

...my dials on my t-jet sport are black?

I remember reading about this in a thread recently, but I couldn't find it, otherwise I wouldn't have to make this seperate thread.

People were saying they wanted black ones cause the white is hard to see in the daytime. I feel priveleged, but is it maybe a factory mistake?

Re: Is it weird how...

Older models ( 2007 - 08 ) have pale grey ("white") here and
2009 forward black ones, at least in the models imported
in Finland.

I think the factory changed the colour scheme just because
of the vision problems and light reflections during the
day time.

Allthough these colours may also vary in differrent models
( Dynamic, Sport etc. ) I have full black in my T- Jet 07
Dynamic.

Re: Is it weird how...

Sport 150 2008 for me, and i got white dials. They look really great, but they may be completely unreadable under certain conditions: at late evening, sunlight coming from behind the car and car lights on. Still, it's a quite sparse phenomenon, ii doesn't bug me.

Re: Is it weird how...

fiat got too many complains about the white dials being unreadable so they switched to dark ones on the new models. you should be happy about it.

Re: Is it weird how...

I thought the 'Active Sport' has black dials and the 'Sport' has the white ones?

kinda glad they changed the dials, the black ones are bad enough to view in the sun, so god knows how bad the white ones must have been

Re: Is it weird how...

I find the white dials on my MJ 150 Sport very hard to read in certain lights, and also obscured by hand placement on the wheel at times. They look cool though.
