I do not like the weird geometric shapes of the two main instruments, speed and RPM. Not sure what was wrong with a circle (seems to have worked for over a century) and is usually the surest sign of "over design" -- design for the sake of design, not function.

Remember the horizontal, rectangular speed indicators of some of the cars in the 1970s and 80s? This design will fall into that same bucket when looked at 20 years from now.

You can certainly do a digital dash upgrade with design elements that don't try and reinvent something that wasn't fundamentally broken. I'm glad I've got the digital dashboard I do, as this new one is a turn off.
