I have a Subaru which did this. I thought it was useless, so I turned it off.

Nothing wrong if it was a personal setting. I doubt if I would have it on, but nothing wrong with options.

I will go with that. It should be an I-drive setting.

I think this thread should be moved to the 335 forum.

My IS 350 did this, I though it was cool at first. But now I do not really care for it, I think it is a little "gimmicky". I guess I would agreee though that it would be nice if it was a feature to turn on or off, as far as I know you could not on the Lexus.

I've had the mis-fortune to have driven a pontiac g6 for the last month as I wait for the new M3 to arrive.

What a nasty piece of sh*t that thing is. Yep, it might do the pointless sweep thing on startup ... but there's no other re-deeming qualities in that car.

I'll be happy to give that thing back to avis tomorrow.

I don't like the sweeping personally, and IS-F is not an exotic car.

i have it on my tC and IS...it was cool at first but its annoying now...what would be nice is if the needle changed colors, i've seen a guy who had his needle go from white to orange to red, on its way to redline, and i think 80-100mph for the speedo needle, now that would be real nice...

heres a vid

I've done the test on my E46, so I'm sure it can be done on the E92. It's pretty cool to see EVERY light in the cluster light up and then see all the gauges do their thing.
