    Around 2000 or so the black faced dials had an orange layer impregnated into the facia, the blue LEDs cannot get through this so you end up with a very dim illumination.

    I did a thread on it a good while ago, do a search and you'll see pics of the layer. Same with the mileage display as well I'm afraid but at least that's removable with a little effort.
