Hello!

A couple of months ago I bought a 2017 Mini Cooper S. I live in Sweden, the car is sold as factory-new i Sweden, and the car is produced 2017-06.

It seems like I have no LED-ring on the centre console... Is that even possible? I have search among both low spec and high spec vehicles from around 2015-2018, and all seems to have that LED-ring.

This is how it looks like in mine:
(on other cars you can see the LED-ring even when it is turned off, but mine seems to have a solid high gloss black ring around the entire display...)

It's optional in some models in some markets. Yours is missing it (as you know!) It would be outside the chrome ring if you had it. Maybe a retrofit project, but I don't know what extra modules or coding might be needed - apart from the binnacle part itself.

Hey, I think the ring is in the standard configuration, so no package is needed. There is a setting to have it completely switched off. Have you checked it is set to off?

Could be. Keep us posted it can be switched off.

The LED light ring is physically missing in @Calle_M's photo. There's no way it can be turned on until it's fitted ;)

Thank you for all answers and ideas. I have actually read the instructions manual (not often that happens :) ) and I think I have figured out how to turn it on and off, and the menu seems to be there, but nothing happens. Then I started to compare how the black ring looks like compared to other cars, and found that there seems to be no LED-elements on mine. The car is otherwise quite well exuipped with Chili (maybe std on S version..), part leather seats, LED-headlights, 17-inch tentacle spoke wheels etc, so I am confused why the previous owner in that case would have skipped the option with the LED-ring... Especially since in sweden we have Mini One versions with almost no equipment, but they have the LED-ring!! :)

Does anyone know whats included in the Excitement pack? I have the Mini-logo projected on the ground when opening drivers door. Is that a sign of excitement pack?

On my 2017 Cooper (built in 2016) I had the Chili pack, Media XL pack and the Excitement pack.

Due to the build year I think I missed out on the logo projection, but with the Excitement pack I had the LED ring, multi-coloured ambient lighting in the cabin (interior door handles, foot wells), puddle lights when opening the doors and lights in the door handles when unlocking the car. I think it also came fitted with driving modes as standard as part of the pack.

I have never seen a Mini without the LED ring so I am confused. Maybe it’s broken? Do you have multi coloured ambient lighting? There should be a toggle in the roof to switch it on and off, and to change the colours.

Good luck!

Yet again, thanks for your answers. And yes, I have the muli coloured ambient lighting, in foot well and door handles etc. Also exterior lights in door handles when unlocking the car. That is why I am so confused why there seems to be not LED-ring. No major issue for me really (since I would probably have it mostly turned of anyway), but still confused why it´s missing
