Back in January I wrote a post on the instrument cluster of the 9-5 with the title I want my colours back.
Back then I said that I wanted Saab to move back to such an instrument panel as in the 9-5 first gen and the 9-3 first gen, or even the 9000, I think the instrument cluster was one of the reasons I bought my first Saab.
Today one of our readers has sent us one of those special pictures, at least for people who like numerology.
In this picture the driver has managed to take a picture of the instrument cluster while driving at 100 mph (Please, don’t do this at home 😉 ) and while reaching the 100.000 miles mark.
100.000 @ 100, maybe this is the proof that a picture is worth 1.000 (words). 😉
But I also wanted to share with you the beauty of this instrument cluster. The colours are just right, as they don’t produce much eye strain at night. The instruments are in one plane, without distracting decorations. Nobody can say if there are any other control lamps besides the “CRUISE” lamp. I just love it.
Other car brands seem to think that this cluster looks good, as their all LCD-screen cluster has just the same characteristics.
