    Hi all,
    I'm running v8.0 in the facelifted MS w/ Premium Package, and there's a button for "Ambient Lighting" next to "Dome lights". Enabling Ambient Lighting dims the ambient lighting when you open any door. Disabling Ambient Lighting makes the ambient lighting brighter? Shouldn't it be the opposite?

    My car has exhibited that behavior as for long as I can remember (since v4.x)

    What I've noticed is that when you toggle off the ambient lighting, yes the door lights get brighter but after some time, they turn off completely. Like when you drive. So they only turn on when you open the door but when you start driving they turn off.

    I'll also add that with the toggle turned on, adjusting the brightness of the screens adjusts the brightness of the ambient lighting as well.
