Yeah I just checked and that's exactly the same as mine. Its weird but hasn't caused me any issues as of yet. Only had the car a month or so. I think I would have noticed if there was a proper issue already.

Re: Dash display issue

Mine is a 2012 build twinair.

Only noticed the lights for around a month..

But could have been on MUCH longer.

As it is now over 6 years old I will just keep an eye on things.

Only items so far : 2 indicator bulbs were no longer YELLOW enough for the MOT.. I believe the LED taillights are still behaving.

Re: Dash display issue

Hard to tell from the pictures, I wander if it’s the light bleeding through from adjacent likes, I had a little look on mine, didn’t notice anything glowing that shouldn’t be, but did notice when a light is on, is does appear to let some light through to those around it.

Re: Dash display issue

Dark enough now for me to notice all this again..

At 'TEST' there are @ 6 icons within the rev counter..

But it is just these 2..

They are on the upper portion.. the others being lower on the face of the tacho.

And yes it only appears @ 30% lit.

Im not too concerned..as it appears unvhanged in 10 months.

Re: Dash display issue

Ok.. looked a bit longer..

The 2 icons light as soon as door is opened.. come on with mileage illumination.

Key operation has no effect..

Once key removed.. the icons lose power.. and return dark after @20 seconds..as whole car powers down
