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? <_<

Have something to contribute?

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?

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?

It shines a gentle red light onto the console and gear stick and looks very flash.

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.

What else have I paid for and not noticed? Ha, there is a spare wheel! Now that is useful,

There's a new years resolution, open my eyes and take notice.

My boss would go nuts if he red (whoops, to many bees beers last night) reads this, I'm meant to be observant in my job. :ph34r:
