Quick question folks... Recently got my UK 2014 S5 and it has inoperative paddle gears and media controls on the steering wheel. I've also noticed the rear window heater light doesn't come on, and indeed doesn't seem to work. I'm hoping the garage will get this fixed.

But something I'm unsure about, my S5 logo on the rev display doesn't light up and it looks like it's supposed to - can someone confirm whether or not it lights up?

And also, when you put headlights on, is that also not supposed to show which lights are on on the instrument cluster area? Nothing at all appears, regardless of sidelights or dipped beams. Thanks.

Don’t know about the S5 logo, but the only indicator lamp for lights that shows on the dash is for high beams. All others are on the switch only, including the fogs.

My 2010 S5 logo lights up when headlights off and is off when they are on if that helps?
Not sure if that’s what it’s meant to do however but it’s always been that way round for me

The S5 logo doesn't light up when the lights are on.
The rest of the dials do but strangely the logo doesn't.

The S5 logo does not illuminate
There is no headlight on indicator. (I always thought vehicles should have a dash indicator. On older vehicles, the dash only illuminated if the parking or headlights were on so you knew something was on. Now the dash illumination is independent. Usually most have the lights on AUTO but at times it gets switched off and you may not realize. A headlight on indicator would be smart)

Thanks folks... Seems they've changed the S5 logo illuminating for the 8.5 model then.

Yeah it seems strange that there's no headlight/sidleight indication either. Especially in such an advanced car. Poor oversight or decision they made on that one. Nevertheless, at least I know these appear not to be malfunctions on my car then. Thanks folks!

Just had a Hyundai rental (don't remember what model....low end) but it had dash symbol when headlights were ON or came on in AUTO. In addition there was a separate symbol indicating LO/HI beam.
