    2011 electroluminescent gauge needles - how to keep these glowing longer?

    Hi,

    Picked up my 2011 5-door last week and I'm lovin it...especially the glow of those needles when you get in the car or are just sitting there after you've turned it off.

    The needle lights seem to fade out after 5-8 seconds or so, but does anyone know if there is a way to keep these glowing until you pull the key out...or open the door...or anything. They just look so mean and id love to keep them glowing for as long as possible.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I know you can completely disable the lights. I have no idea if there's a way to keep it on though without some major modding behind the dash.

    Drive with your main lights turned on all the time. I do this out of habit from years with cars that didn't have DRL's.

    You can adjust the gauge lights with the dimmer to be full bright even with the lights on. Roll the switch (down IIRC) and it will click when the gauges come on full.
