Gti performance active info display
« on: 30 January 2019, 12:42 »
I recently bought a mk 7.5 gti performance. Great car, but one thing bugs me. The active info display is not aligned with the driving position. It's set at an odd angle.

Anyone else notice this on their car?

do you mean its angled towards or away from you? (ie front to back - I can't remember which one it is...)

Thats to prevent glare...

It's angled towards the passenger and at a slight angle left to right. It's the shape of the dashboard.

Seems odd they did not design it so it faces the driver straight.

I've never noticed that!

Can't say its bugged me.

Might be so the passenger can see the dials a bit?

I thought it might that. Once you spot it.......

Of course, it might just be my car.

So since reading this I’ve been out driving in the car three times to see if I can replicate, but I’m struggling to see what the OP is seeing.

OP, does yours point away significantly or is it ever so slight?  :smiley:

I wouldn't say it's a massive angle. But it is offset enough that it is noticable.

Maybe the height of the seat and angle of the steering wheel hides it. I sit quite low.
