Ambient Lights feature/setting - LCI M135i

Anyone else find the Handsbooks deuced hard to follow in places ?

Case in point is the settings for Ambient lights (LCI M135i) ... it suggests that 'some of the (interior) lights' can be configured as either Classic or Sport & has a brightness slider to tune them ....

Only problem is I have no idea what lights are controlled by the I-Drive and Menu (not the same as the F11 I just sold, where the ambience lighting was in the door panel trim and footwells ...) !

Sitting in the car with lights on and engine running, changing these settings does nowt that I can see ...

anyone able to point out why I'm being a simpleton ?

Cheers, ST

Cracked it .... I found a reference to door handle recesses, & vanity mirror areas, footwells also mentioned .... so when it was dark I checked and a faint reflection off the chrome door handles gave me the clue - looking up & back into the recesses, theres a tiny strip of 3 leds, which can be switched twixt orange & white - plus single leds twixt the interior/reading light switches ! Adjusting both the knurled wheel and the OBC slider thingy affect their brightness .... hardly what you'd call 'lighting'

Yep, I came from the F10 to the M135i as well. The ambient lighting in the F20/21 is a big disappointment.
