I find the instrument panel almost impossible to see on a sunny day as its in deep shade, I can just see the speedo but the rest of it is almost invisible
has anyone ever drilled holes in the top plastic cover to let more light in?

can anyone see the instruments when wearing sunglasses, I cant at all, never driven any other car where the instruments are so difficult to read

I don't have any probs but if your plastic cover is scratched up try polishing it with brasso or car polish, it will bring it up heaps better.:wax:

Yeah when I wear dark sunnies it gets hard too see sometimes, my fascia is pretty scratched tho, might try the polish trick but can't be bothered to pull it all out again lol
