Its their instrument cluster (spedometer/tachometer, etc) the three ring looking like cluster in front of you. :) they call it supervision because it is so well illuminated.

My best guess is...

Supervision (super vision) : Every light, number, meter, etc. is bright, clear, and easy to see?
Instrument Cluster : reference to speedometer, odometer, rpm meter, fuel gauge, etc.

The SX supervision meter has more functionality than the EX meter. I think there is at least seven categories of info such as average mpg, instant mpg, water temp, two trip meters, economy driving meter, average speed. The EX is just basic trip meters if I remember correctly. Oh, it also tells you miles till empty.

Stupid question, this is the first care I have had that doesnt have a temperature gage. I have the EX, I assume a light will just be lit if I there is ever a problem?

since I own a koup sx Im very disappointed about the temp indicator that is inside the trip computer and always have to push the button to see this info and my average consum..

they should put a temp gauge on the cluster to make it easy to see every times !

Yeah - had to get an automatic - Wife needs to drive my car once in a while and can no longer drive manual (knee injury!) But its ok, whenever I want more control / fun I use the "semi-automatic / sport shift" mode and to my surprise it works really well. The P changes to R - N - D or in semi-automatic shows which gear your in 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5.

is there a way to change the red lighting/font? im not a fan of red lol
You could take apart your dash and replace the SMD LEDs. Which is a b*tch BTW. Those things are tiny!
