The display in my 2000 1.8T is just fine. Originally a southern California
car which no doubt received a lot of heat, and now a Seattle car which has
had it's fair share of cold weather up in the mountains.
Still fine knock on wood.
I actually have a spare cluster with this display in it laying around. It's
all taken apart...would pictures help anyone?
