No, they don't. However there is a socalled 'KI test' which sets the needles to do that and can be accessed in the hidden menu. I think savage posted a vid of such a test. You may like to search for that.

HAHA, I knew that was an IF-F as soon as I saw your post. Didn't realize it did that.

We all know you changed your car to do that S.

Looks like the IS-F has a built-in radar. Never know when a burning Zeppelin might be about to crash into your car, so it's a good idea I think.
