Nighttime dash backlighting question / problem

I am new to the X1 We just purchased an 2019 and I have a question about the orange nighttime dash backlighting.
On my 2015 328d x drive the whole dash turns from white to orange at night. On our 2019 X1 everything except the spedo / tacho backlighting turns Orange. Is this normal?
Is there any way to change the backlighting for the spedo / tacho area orange at night as well?

Not that I've ever seen on the x1/x2, I've always seen the needles be the only part that swapped to orange.

Ambient lighting from white to orange is normal. You can keep as white through a setting in infotainment screen.

No, tach will not change colors at all.

Mine always stays orange. Can I make it change automatically?

I noticed my needles are sometimes white, sometimes orange. Not sure when this changes or why.

The needles turn orange when the headlights turn on, the HVAC controls also switch from white to orange in the x2, it's probably the same reason.

Yes, true. Need to correct my statement as the needle does change color.
