I have a 420i cabriolet.  It is a great car but I have one issue with it.  The ambient lighting inside the car is ridiculously dim.  I have turned it up on maximum through the iDrive settings but still there is nothing ambient about it!
Does anybody have the same problem or worked out how to increase its intensity?
Thanks in advance

Hi

Turn up the brightness, and do it at night. It changes the ambient lighting in the cabin from Amber (Classic) to White (Sport).

Hello Issus
Thank you for your message.  I have already set the ambient lighting to Sport and I have tried to change the intensity at night to ensure that I can see the results.  Hasn't worked I am afraid.

Try Megadodo.org.uk  on page 39 of Straight Six  - he lives and breathes BMW and has the know how to overcome your issue. Certainly worth a try.

Which issue of straight six are you referring to?  I have looked at p39 in the last few (March, April and May) and could not see megadodo.org.uk anywhere.  Sorry.
