325XI Odometer and Clock brighter

Tonight I was sitting in my car idleing and for about 2 minutes the Odometer trip meter and clock section was brighter than normal and then returned back to its normal color. Anyone have this happen before? Also prior to this I turned on my highbeams and one was out, the warning light came on then went off and the highbeam is still burned out. I am hoping this isn't the start to an electrical issue or overcharging issue. Car is completely stock no aftermarket lights or radios. I am gonna put a multimeter on it tomorrow and see what its charging at when I get to work. Anyone else have this happen?

Mine has done this, except it did the opposite. It just randomly dimmed for about 5 seconds and then went right back to bright. It was during the day, too. It wasn't the light sensor because it was an immediate shift back to bright.

Who knows. Silly German electrical gremlins.
