1. You can only adjust the orange.

2. You can't adjust the red.

3. Red on rpm is higher than 6000rpm

4. There is no red on speed

Its a good feature in IMO but I find it strange thats its only on the IS250 but not on the IS-F.

Spot on guys....'orange' is preset by the user, 'red' cannot be preset and is factory set at 200km/h and 6000 RPM.

A real pity that you cant set the red yourself, because I would love the red to kick in and say 110 km/h or something.

Cevu will have to let us all know how you get preset the red. I've asked my dealer twice, and they've said it can't be done.

I set my Tacho to come on orange ~3500rpm as that's where most of the torque is.

Speedo set at 110km - After that going over the max speed limit.

Yeah it's one of those things you set when you first get the car and don't usually touch it again.

Yep, the red ring on the speedo comes on at 200km+, and you cannot change it.

Here's mine, pic taken from my daily commute to work:
