A Small Easter Egg

One little hidden feature I just noticed. If your car is shut off and you want to check the odometer reading, just press the "ODO / TRIP" button. Not only will the multifunction display light up and show you your current mileage (and yeah, I know a lot of cars do this), but also the whole instrument cluster will illuminate, and as a small bonus, the fuel gauge will "wake up" and show you how much gas is in your tank. Nice!

I dare you to not walk out to your garage right now to see it for yourself.

S-ON? I don't know that one... but G-OFF/G-ON is the gear selection indicator and fuel saver shift indicator (have mine on)

S-ON/OFF is for the tach doing the sweep at the start of the car.

Ah, slipped my mind; my FR-S doesn't show S-OFF/S-ON when cycling through the ODO button with the car off though...need the key in and in off or ACC position to get that option.

also, if you set the rev limit, every time you turn on the car, the rpm meter will jump to whatever you set the limit to, shine the light, pause, then return to idle. Just to remind you of your settings thought that was pretty cool too.
