Are you sure about the inside door handle lights? Mine is sport and has the extended light pack but don't seem to have lights within.

I must be missing something here, I have changed the light settings and can not see any difference In any of the interior lights. Can some one please treat me like an idiot and point me in the direction and possibly some pics please?
I have got the extra pack which includes auto aircon which is the one with the lighting

Wow I feel daft

Then you'll fit in well here

The light is very subtle it basically just gives you a little glow on the door handles and passenger foot well as far as i can tell.

You don't sound too convinced yourself as well mate

Done a google search and nothing on there either, just thought there would be a difference between the white and orange I think it is.

I once watched a clip on BMW.tv that showed the interior lights of Urban and Sport line. You might try a search there

Have to say i did expect them to be a little more prominent to say it was an optional extra.

It's not the main interior lighting - it's the waterfall lights over the gear-stick and the tiny LEDs in the interior door handles, that can either be the traditional BMW amber, or "sport" white.

Had a closer look earlier. The interior door handle lights are very feint, you need to put fingers underneath to see their light. On mine lights set to sport:

the door handles, roof, beneath the doors and footwell the lights are white
Dash, iDrive and central dash are orange.

Yes. I didn't see it either at first, you have to put your fingers within and will see the white light reflecting on them. It's quite feint.

Its better in classic as you get a little red light on the door handles. It is very subtle though.

Just happened to be taking some photos of my girl today, so snapped some of these lights for you too.

Here you see the effect on the middle console (from the lights in the ceiling and from the lights under the climate controls).
