Lights dimming

Whenever I put my headlights on, or just put it on "auto", my dashboard-lights dim. With this I mean that the speedindicator and rpm-indicator dim.

Is this normal :/

Yes - you can adjust the brightness with the illumination knob on the left of your rev counter. There is a separate brightness for lights on and for lights off

Before I read this message I already thought it was that knob (just went to the car park to check) but it didn't do anything :/. I'll have another try later..

pressy twisty press twist knob, you press it then twist it, don't pull it, press it, when you've pressed it with your index finger, it pops out to twist it, to twist it, rotate your wrist in a twisty fasion to get the desired dimming from the pressy twist knob.

Mines more comprehensive though!
