As a VW owner, I can attest to the beauty of the cool blue/red guage combo. It doesn't clash, it's easy to read, and it's just, well.. pleasing. I much prefer it to the weak red glow of the Protege5 guages. Granted I haven't driven a MZ3 yet, but in photos it looks like they did it right.98LX said:I'm not sure how I feel about the blue, it clashes too much with the red.
If blue and red catches your attention, thats a good thing at night. The worst thing at night is to have a boring dash. You want something taht will keep you alert and interested. I've been in a VW before at night and the presentation is very well put together.Spammy56 said:Having owned a Jetta I can say how much I hate red/blue color combinations. I don't think there is as much contrast in the 3 than there was in the Jetta. The Jetta guages gave me a headache. Why do you think the lighs on the top of police cars alternate between blue/red? It is because these two colors together do not allow your eye to focus properly so it really catches your attention. IMO, Blue/Red lighting is very gimiky.
I drove a Gran Prix once that was all red and I didn't like it. I guess we'll see how well i like it when I get my 3.Spammy56 said:I was saying it grabs your attention because they clash when put together and your eyes cannot focus very well. Much like green and orange together. BTW schulkw, the gauges in the 3 are mostly red.
