There are brightness controls for the large center panel (only), for the driver-center speedometer area (only), but I can't find a way to dim the left and right side panels in front of the driver (which to me are way too bright at night). Am I missing something??

In my cars, the instrument dimming buttons control all interior instrument lights, including all three LCD screens.

Where are those dimming buttons you described?

Next to the headlight control knob.

Next to the headlight control knob.

On my car, that dims only the center circular speedometer area, not the left and right side panels.

Try it with the headlamps on. It allows for individual settings for when the headlamps are on or off.

Same here, I just thought of this discussion as we were riding along with the Auto headlights on. 

The 'down' button makes a window open on the display with a bar graph and the bars retreat lower, the 'up' button does the opposite.

All three instrument displays work at once, together, couldn't be simpler.

Thanks, that did it. It adjusts all the panel together.
