    Interesting. So it's just there because they didnt want to make more than one gauge cluster thing for different markets. Makes sense but weird that they have that in other countries... That would SUCK

    Question would then be: Why on the dash panel of the Si model? That side over there is under the VTEC lights. If only the US and Canadian markets have that car, why this?

    i personally have never seen the light come on, even with a prolonged drive at 210 km/h (gotta do something crossing Sask) and that was with vtec in 6th :canada:

    Just a guess but maybe Honda uses that same cluster in a car overseas.
