BMW always had red/orange gauges. It is less tiring to the eye at night, requiring less adjustment of the eye when the environment is dark.
P.S. It is also possible that you got to whatever age that you are while completely misunderstanding the meaning of the word "pink". This is unlikely, but would be hilarious if true.
+1 for me. BMW was one of the first to pioneer ergonomics in their driver's compartment which included amber lighting for night time driving. Lots of cars used to have amber lighting. I had a 1987 Mazda RX7 turbo 2 which was all amber. Amber lighting is very easy on the eyes at night. Then the car companies seemed to drift away - reinventing the wheel so to speak. BMW stayed the course.
