The green lighting used in the c900s is optimal in terms of minimizing driver distraction. There should be no reason not to be able to dim green led's just as well as red led's... I suspect this is an implementation issue from VW (and it is normal for non-Swedish manufacturers to have less than spectacular ergonomic implementations of things, especially those technological)...
I agree that night panel has a purpose - I use it regularly on our 9-5, but that car has lots of orange/amber lighting which I find more abrupt than the green in the c900... that said, it might be cool to add night panel to the c900! Should not be hard... if we ignore turning off gauges that are unlit (eg turbo)... that's a bit much. Actually, I like to be able to see the turbo gauge peripherally all the time - one thing I'm meh on about nightpanel actually...
