The driver can select the gauges visible by four modes: Standard, Comfort, Eco Pro and Sport, which can be further customized by color and information displayed.

BMW has presented a multifunctional instrument panel for its new 5-Series, taking customization in cars beyond paint and upholstery to other areas that drivers care about.

The customizable instrument display features a 10.25-inch display with Black Panel technology. It retains the conventional arrangement of four round gauges but lets the driver choose between four different modes, which can be further customized in terms of the colors and the information displayed.

As well as the standard mode, there is Comfort, Eco Pro, and Sport. Comfort features the conventional layout of four closed round instruments, while Eco Pro and Sport displays opened up rings with additional information between the instruments.

The rev counter in the Eco Pro mode becomes an EfficientDynamics display, showing how efficiently the car is being driven. If the panel is changed to Sport mode, the speed is displayed digitally via a large figure in the center of the speedometer, and the selected gear is shown in the center of the rev counter.
