I cant believe they haven't changed that. I have a 2016 and its crazy in the sun. The chrome around the heater controls is blinding also.I just bought a White 2013 GS with only 6000 miles on it. Only had it for 4 days. So far the only annoyance is the chrome bezel around the shifter. Here in sunny Florida it glares in my eyes and I have to hold my hand over it. Other than that the car is great and a joy to drive!
