That's OK


You have a facelift which means the car info is incorrect that you entered when you joined.

There is a link in my signature you can follow to fix that. - also here car bio

The dash picture looks ok to me, this is normal when the key is turned in the ignition.

When you remove the key from the ignition the dashboard lighting will go back to grey.
