    Am I going mad, or does my dash lighting appear to dim or increase its back lighting dependant upon the light?

    If I look directly at the dashboard the main info block of the dashboard between the speedo and rev counter appears to dim or brighten depending upon the ambient light levels - it's not a problem, it is in fact quite cool, I just wanted to know what option this would have been as it doesn't get referred to in the manual (my car does have extended lighting such as interior LED etc.

    Just curious really

    That's not an option...you have a light sensor just above the light switch which measures the ambient light and adjusts the display accordingly. You will notice that your climate and stereo display will behave in the same way. Have a play by covering the sensor with your finger

    thank you - I was sure it was something like that but thought best to ask - I wonder what else it does :-)
