The dash at night

Recommended Posts

No photo at the moment, but I put LED bulbs on my Corolla's dashboard and the one that tells me how much fuel I've got flickers a lot. It's like a trance disco on my dashboard but only I'm invited.

I am a big fan of the 850 dash, just look at it:

That's a proper dashboard.

Though because I like distraction-free driving it normally looks like this:

11/10, if I do say so myself.

Have to admit that the Cactus is on the list of modern cars I like.  Never driven one but we had two demonstrators through Chris' work and they seemed nice places to be and felt properly quirky like a Citroen should.  Seemed quite well thought out as a practical car (echoes of Berlingo) and still pretty comfy.

Only gripe we all had was the bloody touch screen.

Still reckon they missed a trick by not offering it in black but with the cladding in really lurid colours.  I'd like one in black with neon orange or yellow cladding.

I’m taking the little hired Dennis back to the rental firm, so I thought I’d share the dash with you.

Yes I can well believe that. Renault/Volvo engines in these

later elite 2s used a Volvo instrument panel as below which is a pleasing set to read.

early Elite 2 and prior models used bespoke equipment. I may be having the hire truck from Rent-a-wreck tomorrow so I’ll get a photo if I have.
