Nice thread and wonderful dashboards.

Forgetting the dash's in latest gen cars, could someone post those uber cool top 10 dashboards from old time classics and vintages.

Those Chevy's /VW's/Ford's etc etc.,

BMW 7-Series's 'Night vision with Heads Up Display' sounds amazing!!
I heard that they were also integrating a obstacle/pedestrian detection system in it??

Great thread! The Honda Insight dash looks like a Winamp skin. Amongst the desis, I like the Captiva's dash. Looks similar to the first picture on this thread.

What are the criteria? Design or equipment? IMO, design is something that is relatively cheap but can make a car look very cool. Look at the Civic for instance!

@ Sohail "I heard that they were also integrating a obstacle/pedestrian detection system in it??"

The whole car will blow up if this was implemented in our country. The whole road is full of obstacles. But trust me even I like the BM's comsole.

nice looking dash board but one needs to verify how good they look in broad daylight..

Btw the baleno has the best dash board I have ever come across, I own it & I love it..
