I've tried adjusting the panel dimmer, but even at its lowest setting the rectangle is visible. Even in the garage at night, with the garage lights turned on, it is visible. The car was in the shop today for a center speaker replacement and I wonder if something needs to be reset. Thanks
It is on ours too, at first I thought it was something wrong but I got used to it as it appears to be a separate page for multiple data displays .

I am ok with it now.

My 2011 x28 has this highlighted area also, and I just had a 2012 x35 loaner overnight and they both have this box. I'll get used to it.
