Just wanted to share some info on this option, courtesy of a man from Jag I met at Cheltenham dealer.

Without Mood: Door signature lines/ door bins/ interior door handles illuminated in phosphor blue.
Interior lights/ footwell lights/ glovebox light illuminated by 'filament' type bulbs (yellowy white). No dash signature line illumination (above the vents).

With Mood: Interior lights/ footwell lights illuminated by white LEDs. Glovebox illuminated by filament bulb. All other lights configurable (colour/ brightness), including dash signature line.

My point is: I HAVE to have all the interior lights matching thus I have opted for mood lighting (which will be set to white!) and I'll have to get a white LED from Halfords for the glovebox!

N.B. Interior lights/ footwell lights do not change colour with mood lighting- white only!

Please double check this info if it is important to you. The Man from Jag wasn't sure himself and had to check.
Don't know about boot area (will be matching LED for me, one way or another).

Interior mood lighting is standard on Prestige and above. The configurable option is £200.
The standard option is fixed on those models and with limited colour, the £200 makes it configurable and adds more colours...

Yes, you are all correct.
I meant to distinguish between 'standard' and 'configurable'.
My initial thought/ hope was that when configurable was chosen, ALL interior lighting would be selectable and matching. Not the case.

Hi all,
I have calmed down a bit from my rant earlier, :evil: I haven't been an officer for a while now so I can't recite the exact word of the law however, it is illegal for a public / private vehicle to emit...... Visable to other road users anything other than white light from interior lighting...... (This is the discretionary bit... )Which could be dangerous or distracting to other road users. Your nicked sunshine.. Oops.sorry force of habit. No doubt someone will correct me again

Personally it's not for me as I don't tend to take much notice of the interior lighting whilst driving at night!
Surely it's off whilst driving, otherwise it would be a distraction.

Do you know the bulb sizes of the filament bulbs? I want to change them to LEDs but don't know the bulb size

Some parts are off, the roof lighting but the footwell and the lighting around doors and trim remain on.

Boot lights are also LED.. My only annoyance is the reflection you get on the drivers side window at night from the mood light above the vent and the electric window switches. It's right in the field of view of the mirror. Eventually I guess I will see past it.

It really is utterly stupid positioning of the electric window switches.

In the Evoque I found the blind slot monitoring to be hugely effective. In the FP because your brain quickly learns to ignore the window switch reflection in the wing mirrors it also ignores the BSM logo!

Add to that in the rain water collects around the outside window seal so if you lower the window before its dry water runs into the switch mechanism.

Somewhere in JLR design team are a couple of ex British Leyland designers and I reckon they were given the task of designing the window switch position!!

Agree the Evoque position was the best place, just spoils the lines of the top of the door in my eyes, its like where can we put this, oh that's just bung it there.

I personally dont have a problem with the positioning of those switches, quite used to it as the freelander was in the same position, i also find it easier for mirror adjustment as its part of the same panel.... Also as you are about to squeeze through a gap its easier and quicker to hit the two buttons and fold the mirrors rather than hunt around lower down on the dash like some cars.

you will get used to it.

Hey guys,

I have made a video of the ambient light. It is in german but I think the video explains everything.
I am talking about where all the interior lights are and show the different colors:

SO we had the mood lighting because the wife wanted it!

We get the car and messing around with it in the evening and she says, no i want it to be blue. I explain we have all the other colours. But no the blue is the best colour.

I tell her that was the standard colour, we didn't need to pay for the extra. and now its my fault for ordering it!!!!
