    got to ask, I’ve been going through my i drive, I spotted under lights I can have them ‘sports’ or normal, what is the actual difference this would make? It doesn’t elaborate at all

    Incidentally we took the car out for it’s first night drive tonight, I *really* like the white headlights :love: I think I’m forgiving the 3 minors so far lol

    No idea on the sports light, turn that feature on and see if it goes faster.....

    Maybe it changes the internal lighting colour?

    That'll be closer to the 'cockpit' lighting we used to have on the e39, e60 etc.

    if your talking about the 'ambient lighting' feature, that is the lighting in the doors and dash trim
    sports is orange and classic is white (might be the other way round I cant remember without changing) it just gives a little glow and breaks up the otherwise dark interior.

    it certainly makes no difference to the outside (obligatory) lights at all

    I think @Msport318 is referring to the headlights. My old E61 had the option of sports or comfort headlights, it had adaptive cornering lights but I never worked out what the different modes did, I can only assume it was something to do with the cornering speed?

    Adaptive lights work when the light switch is set to 'Auto' and full beam is in operation. They work in conjunction with steering input, i.e. they illuminate the road ahead, round corners etc

    Yes, and on some models there are options in the idrive for the headlights.

    Isn't this for Ambient Lighting in the cabin? My F30 lists the options as 'Sports' or 'Classic'. You need to turn the brightness control to Maximum to see it clearly. I can't remember which mine is set on - does it really matter? :)
