I do understand what the MEP does and how you can change colors by flipping the switch to whatever color you prefer but has anybody found the 255 color settings like Mini claims on there site or do they refer that you can hit the switch 255 times and the color just changes enough that you can not see it with the naked eye? The Owners Manual is not very clear about that one. My door panels only light up around door handles and of course the footwell and centerstack I do not have the rest of the light package above the armrest.:confused::redface:

Adjustable mood lighting is a signature MINI touch. With 12 settings and 255 colors, this lighting accents the doors, footwell and center stack.

I really don't believe it has 255 colours. If it does, it cant be picked up by the human eye.

My MCS has LEDs in the door card pockets, window switches and the door handles. If you buy the MINI Yours interior trims you get the additional light piping in the door arches but even then I think that 255 colors is a stretch.

Well me offer a very geeky answer to the 255 colors. This number is suspicious as its FF in hexadecimal speak or all 8 bits are set to 1s. While humans can't see all these variations, as pointed out above, they still exist digitally :)

If you hold the switch forward or backwards that changes the colour after a few seconds it will flash and then it will cycle through the colours in the appropriate places in the car. You can then see the different shades of the colours. If you press the switch again it seems to then to stop at the particular shade. So this is probably how they account for 255 colours.

All you need then is a mini disco ball to hang from the rear vision mirror and it's a party on wheels ;)

Sounds like someone is showing their age (disco). Just make sure your flares dont get caught in the door.:D
Ouch!

Didn't you know everything old is in again? Otherwise how do you explain hipsters? (Although if I never see another set of flares or beaded fringes it'll be too soon)

I refuse to fund a company that sells car lashes. Literally the worst idea in the world. I'll stick to my blueberry Jelly Belly!
No no it's the disco ball!!:D

And what's a Jelly Belly?
