    Hmm, I don't think any of my cars did that. Usually after a car wash, I'll get those wet streaks for at least half a day, even with drying the car. But two days after a rainstorm? I'd say that's out...

    As mentioned, adjust the display all the way up or all the way down, or put a piece of paper/cardboard over the display. I'd say that's a pretty easy solution.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. Anything and everything has the potential to break. That doesn't mean that it will. Turbos are not wear items that need to be replaced every 50k or 100k miles....
