Do The Intervals on the Digital Dash Drive Anyone Else Crazy?

10-20-40-60-80-120-160, all the same distance apart. It's mind-blowingly awful. And somehow the fact that it's digital and could easily be fixed makes it worse.

The digital display doesn't get a lot of love. Especially the backwards tach.

I wish I'd be you, if that's your only issue with it!

I think he means that the entire gauge cluster sucks not just the intervals

Oh, yes, definitely. But my mild-OCD can't handle the intervals.

I agree they drive me nuts. When I first got my car I thought, wait you're kidding me right? If only the M cluster worked properly

I honestly never even noticed it until you just now mentioned it. I don't really pay too much attention to the instrument cluster, the HUD gives me all the info I need, so I'm not really bothered by its lack of customization or backwards tach.

That being said, I think the color scheme of the instrument cluster is fine, it IMO is subtle and doesn't use overly bright colors, so it compliments the cabin well. However, I totally understand other people's frustration with it. As it is, it's pretty useless as a digital display.
