I have all the other ambient lighting in the photos but the BMW logo at the floor of the door (driver and passenger) is not lit up in my 535ix (Canadian model). Can anyone explain to me why? (malfunction, region dependent, etc..?)

Illuminated BMW Logo on the door sills is due to Ambient Lighting on 535d and 550i only according to the European price list with descriptions. I suppose BMW has the same policy throughout other regions.

you're right, but with my black interior it's hardly noticeable in my 325i coupe. Cannot wait till my F10 with cinnamon interior. Hopefully it will be more noticeable.

Canada doesn't have diesel versions yet so I guess the BMW logo lighting is only available on the 550i? Strange why they would make this model specific.

Another thing I noticed is that my ambient light on th car doors are not as bright as the photos. They are only vibrantly noticeable if I'm in complete darkness (yes the light dial is turned up completely). In the photos, the outside light is pretty bright but the door lights looks vibrant. Could it just be the photo?

Right.

Why didn`t they make the illuminated logo an option for all models as MB does for E class, for example, due to luxury setting of the vehicle.

By the way, Adaptive drive is available only on 535\55i and 530\35d in Europe what contributed to choosing 530d instead of 528i as a car to buy for myself(there is quota shortage for 535i at my dealer), but it will be delivered less then in a month from the order date.

From the Canadian BMW brocure:
"Ambient light includes illumination of the storage compartment in the front centre armrest, the storage areas in the doors, the door openers, and the door trims, as well as illuminated entry sills and vicinity lighting integrated in the exterior door handles."
The description is prefexed with a solid box indicating the it is standard equipment and is included in the model matrix at end of the brochure under all models as standard.

So I should have the BMW logo lighting 535ix? Can anyone else actually confirm their 535i or 528i doesn't have the BMW logo lighting?

Does the ambient light stays on while driving or does it only goes on when locking and unlocking the car? Same as the interior light than? It also goes on for a while an then is goes out.

The interior ambient lights stay on while driving. Keep in mind the lights look a little extra "bright" in these photos. It doesn't look quite that bright to your eyes.

Of course, I have the Cinnamon Brown interior, so that would bring down the brightness a little too. Black interior would also mute the brightness a bit. Oyster would probably be blinding.

You know, that might be an interesting mod for Oyster interiors. Change the ambient lights to blacklights. Then your interior would glow!

Hi there,

It is possible to turn off completely ambient lighting? When you are driving the door sills are illuminated or not?

Is this true? I'd like to just add the LED strips in the doors (interior). Anyone know if it just a case of fitting the LED strips to connectors hat may even be there?
