BA XR dash illumination

I was wondering what colour the 2 little screen on the dash lit up, eg the ones that show your Odometer reading and Fuel consumption and stuff like that, I know the Speedo and Revcounter are both blue.

Also if you dont orderpremium sound what colour is the sterio/aircon screen?

Thanks

The two little screens are blue when back-lit. The Premium ICC screen is light-blue, and inverts to black with white text when the headlights are on.

Also if you hold the main volume control knob in the premium screen goes black.

Normal screen (aka ute) stays a whitish colour - no blue.

Which reminds me. Strange but true. On the utes the blue and red HVAC controls etc reflect off the back window into the rear vision mirror at night. What a major pain in the butt. No matter how I adjust the mirror it always looks like a disco out back....
