2013 Lexus GS 350: Moody Instrument Panel

See that blue hue above and between the tachometer and speedometer? That means the GS is in a good mood. And in "Normal" mode. Drive it around in the "Normal" Drive Select mode and the blue brightens and dims in proportion with speed and load. Come to a stop and it fades to black.

Swap to "Sport" or "Sport +" mode and the blue turns to red. And the GS's responses sharpen accordingly.

And had I ever switched the GS into "ECO" mode, I'd be able to tell you what color the instrument panel is in that mode, but I haven't. However, I'd bet on blue since it seems to be the new green.
