    Anyone notice recent VINs have a thinner bezel that goes around the instrument cluster? I wonder why they changed that?

    hmm, very interesting. (and upside downish)

    I know that when dun hits mine just right the reflection is very, very bright/blinding. I think that is the only complaint that I never sent to ownership. I planned on trying to plastidip the bright stuff in the car for this reason.

    Right. The first time was a real shocker. It doesn't happen to me very often, but I can see where it could if you have the right (maybe that should be wrong) commute. The smaller bezel would help, but I'm guessing that the plastidip is the real cure.

    The thinner bezel also makes the screen look bigger, I wonder if we can buy the new part...is it stuck to the screen?

    I think the smaller one looks much better. Makes me want it, lol.
