F31 330d M Sport Instrument Cluster

Hey all. Basic question - a mate mentioned the e90 version of this car didn't have a temp gauge. Just wanted to make sure the F3x does... Any pics?

One thing I am disappointed with is the darkness of the dashbord instruments during the day.

I have moved from an 2008 E61 525D via an 2010 F11 520D Touring onto the F31 and both of these had white illuminated dashboard dials and controls during daylight which turned orange at night.

The F31 dashboard seems quite dark during the day with no illumination of the instruments at all even with the DRL turned on. To achieve the orange glow the side lights or headlights have to be turned on.

Anyone else noticed this ?

hmmm - in my E61 520d I think the dash lights are off, even with the DRLs on. Only when the headlights come on automatically does the dash light up (e.g. going through tunnel).

Unless I'm confused. Will check when back in the car tonight or on the weekend...
