FYI: It is much better to include a picture along with this sort of question. Also, include key information like the drive mode.

These cars have very complicated displays and lots of things change depending on what other parameters are operating. A question this vague could be answered in many ways.

It’s in whisper mode, and here is a pic. Sorry for the vague post, it doesn’t turn blue all the time only sometimes while driving.

I drive in Whisper mode most of the time, except I have the instrument cluster in dark mode while yours is in light mode.

I see the same sort of blue waves effect that you're observing. I believe it is loosely tied to the amount of power being used to keep the vehicle in motion.

In Unbridled mode this effect is much more pronounced and more obvious. Whisper is more subtle. Engaged doesn't have this sort of animation.

I believe it’s that the colors shift to signify efficient driving. It was mentioned way early on but not as much lately. If you’re going a constant but efficient speed you’ll notice it

How can I change the instrument cluster to dark instead of light?
