When the sun is behind you at some angles, it is impossible to see the idiot lights on the dash. A longer dashboard 'hood' over the top of the gauges would limit this and make seeing the lights on the dash easier.


I also wish that they made the clock easier to read as well, I liked the previous dash that had the clock in its own display area on the tach. ( pre-2006).

Thanks

Daveo

YES!!! I've got one of those dash pouches up there that also acts a little like a hood, only problem is I can't see if I'm going 70 or 80!

Like your Red/Green Quotation!
