I wouldn't say no to this gauge


Most analogues are better than digital gauges though. The readability at a glance can't be beat. You don't know the exact value while looking ahead but you can guesstimate it to +-10kmh.
With a digital dash you have to look down and actually focus on the number to know your speed.

It's like in digital and analogue watches. Quick glance for analogue, longer glance for digital.

Analogue. Digital seems tacky for the most part, apart from some really wacky yet awesome 80s gauges from Mazda and Nissan. There's also something awesome about the swooping startup of dials in Lexuses (Lexii?), about the only thing I like about any Lexus..

Digital is just lamely 80s and really nerdy. Like that watch with the calculator built in that that asian kid in your class in grade school always had.

I'd much rather have an analog clock or watch, and the same applies to my car.

In fact, just look at this, it's one of the best looking dashes in production right now, and it's dragged immensely down in quality by the tiny little digital display in the radio:

It's A HONDA! Clarity Plug In Electric
That's from the Lamborghini Reventon.
So its expensive and impractical

This is good!

That burns the eyes. Your taste is for laser floyd at the planetarium. I get it but i don't need all that information why I still drive my SAAB at night in night mode.

Or this weird pre-BMW Rolls without a RPM meter?
All Rolls are automatic so why would you need an RPM meter in the backseat?

My Toyota does that (if it's what it sounds like), so the best thing about a Lexus is even on an inexpensive daily driver.
