I think that is the new way of calculating distance for 2012.
Instead of miles your readout now shows "Lightyears" :D
So in other words your beetle so far traveled 2,13344 light years since its conception. ;)

Of course it could also be that your instrument cluster is on it's way out. :( Is the speedometer and other gauges still working?

Perhaps it is just a way of Bailee trying to comunicate with you and wish you a very Happy New Year! :party:

What's the paint code inside your door shim say?
Actually, the option codes might be in the trunk under the carpet just above the spare tire.

Sorry to say that the dash cluster is on it's way out. Not really a problem as long as all the other things work (Check all the warning lights come on and extinguish as normal) Only down side is eventually you may not be able to read the service interval times.
