    You still haven't explained why it was low already. Perhaps simply because the dealer didn't top it off like they were supposed to. Hardly out of the ordinary and hardly worthy of blog time.

    the bmw dealer never topped off our e90 when we brought it there.

    Am I the only one who thinks that the space below the tach is kinda small for important vehicle system messages. I know the message is accompanied by a warning chime but since the entire space is a TFT display the odometer, temp and fuel info should go away and warning messages displayed in larger font. The odometer info could be moved to smaller space under the tach. Washer fluid is not important but what if it was a overheat warning or low oil level? Ford, maybe from experience, knows how to display malfunctions that get your attention

    Those Ford gauges with the blue needles sure look dated now.

    Shows up in the head up display in cars so equipped as well as the iDrive screen.

    I'll take simple and straightforward over that mess on the 328i.
    Complexity for the sake of complexity leads to expensive repairs down the line.
    I can't remember ever hearing a passenger in my vehicles say, "Hey, that's an impressive gauge cluster."

    My 535IGT uses the washer fluid really fast because theres a headlight washer that uses the washer fluid in addition to the wipers...

    I had an E90 that went through more washer fluid in the 2 1/2 years I leased it than any other car I've ever owned, combined. @535gt is correct. It is because the headlight washers use so much!
