The face of your guages either dim or lighten the display in various lighting conditions you are in. It allows you to have an optimum view of your display cluster. If you pay close attention to your guages esp. in direct sunlight (sun shining into the car from behind) the guage face has a blue tint. It's an electrochromatic system that works similarly to your auto dimming mirrors.
The light sensor for this is located right beneath the high center mounted stop lamp on the rear deck of your car.
