[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]I've had my focus a year now and last night for the first time I noticed the 2 orange ambient lights set in the overhead light. Do I need to go to Specsavers?[/font][/size][/color] <_<
Stoney871
Yes
TDCiST
If you havent noticed them... Fancy sending them to me ;) lol
Stoney871
He's blind not daft. :P
TDCiST

Steve
only manual models get these right?

I've always wondered about these LED's in the interior light. What it the LED's purpose?

I remember a guide had been made, it was called a submarine light? Why are they referred to as submarine? Because it's the shape of one?
Stoney871
It's because it's red lighting that doesn't affect the ability to see to drive at night and gives you the light to see controls.

You mean like an ambient "soft" light? Where? On the centre console?
Stoney871
It shines a gentle red light onto the console and gear stick and looks very flash.

Hmmm, may have to look for one of those units.
Dave the Dude
I got them too near to sunglass holder in headlining
Stoney871
They're not cheap.
NorthSussex
[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]They are really not that impressive, I didn't notice I had them for nearly a year, but as I must have paid extra to have them I had better start appreciating them and only drive at night.[/font][/size][/color]

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]What else have I paid for and not noticed? Ha, there is a spare wheel![/font][/size][/color] [color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]Now that is useful,[/font][/size][/color]

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]There's a new years resolution, open my eyes and take notice. [/font][/size][/color]

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]My boss would go nuts if he [s]red[/s] (whoops, to many [s]bees[/s] beers last night) reads this, I'm meant to be observant in my job. :ph34r: [/font][/size][/color]

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]Looooks tempting, I'll have to let the head settle a bit, the brain still hurts even after 18 hours. Bother*@*@*@*@*.[/font][/size][/color] :wacko:

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]I now know why I haven't noticed the submarine ambient lighting, They are connected to the instrument panel dimmer circuit and my dimmer was turned down. Doh. :unsure: I don't need to go to Specksavers after all![/font][/size][/color] [color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]That calls for another beer, cheeeers![/font][/size][/color]

So jealous. Just bought the bulbs for the footwell lights and think it looks excellent. Made me think about submarine lighting again. Might revisit it and give it a go!

I think you can change the colour of these ambient lights by turning the dial on the left of the mirror light

That's on the MK3 models mate, this is a MK2.5. There is only an Orange/Red LED fitted.
