LED ring and internal lighting

Ok I've only had a quick scoot through the menus, but can't figure out how to make the LED ring do anything! Other than when reversing. And how do I change the colour of the lights in the footwell and handles etc?? Is there info anywhere? Can't see anything in the handbook :-/

Mark??????? ;-)

Changing mood lights is one of the toggles on the roof of the cabin I think (was in R56).

The LED ring should be doing something! I understand you can have it off entirely. Not heard of just a reverse option only....MARK??!!

Edit. Do the LED ring change colours as you select sport or Eco mode? They should turn red and green respectively?

Yep they do that :-) I thought I could set it to just do pretty colours though (I'm such a girl haha!). And I thought it should do something for satnav too - but it just sort of stays an orangey red on the right side of the ring the entire time. No biggie, I'll figure it out :-)

I'm just reading through some PDF gumpf. I could be wrong, but there is a light package called "excitement". Did you have that? It's in the Chili pack? That seems to bang on about the lights changing with driving.
I like the pretty lights too and I'm a boy!

I must be a total bore - had the lighting activated when I picked the car up but it drove me mad - so found out how to switch them off completely as soon as I got home and haven't had them on since !!!!

The orangey red on the right side is the REVs indicator. As you may notice, if you accelerate, white light will light on the left of the ring until it reaches the orange or red side. This is like the tachometer!
Also if you turn on the volume, you may see how it increases there. The same with A/C.

To change the color in door handles and floormats, etc, you need to use the second toggle (right to left) on the roof lamp.

Hope this helps.

Ah ok I will try the roof toggle tomorrow!!

The ring didn't seem to change with revs etc, but then I couldn't maybe see so well as it was such a sunny bright day. I shall continue to play!! Thanks :-)

I have excitement pack, so it *should* all work ok I hope? Just got to figure it out!!

Mood light colours is the roof switches, second from the right. It says you press to change colour, hold to start cycling through colours and press again to stop. The brightness is the little wheel next to the headlight switch (which controls other instrument brightness too).

LED ring (says the manual) is under Settings > Center Instrument, then you can set basic display or event display... the manual doesn't give details but tachometer is an example.

This is a great way for me to learn before I get my car
