So picked my r-line up last Tuesday and I am over the moon, however noticed last night that I haven't got any footwell lights :?

Does the r-line come with them? I've got the option on the car settings to increase brightness of them but taking a look underneath the holes and cabling is there but no light units??!? In fact the cable dangles down lol

Hmmm Spikeysam, I would of thought you would of had footwell lights as I have them in my SEL. I would give your dealer a ring, as I've just looked on the configurator on the R-Line and it says I quote 'Ambient lighting' in the footwell as 'standard'

Ok got an R line ambient lighting in both footwells also when opening the door you should have the bottom of the door lighting up the outside pavement area. So check you have those as well?? Cables hanging :shock:

Ok when I mean hanging it's just a wire popping out of the hole where the light unit would sit. Will be going to the dealer and asking for them to be fitted then. I've got lights underneath the mirrors but haven't checked underneath the door.

Surprised as the VW factory electrical system test should have identified this omission!.......and then there's the safety net of the dealer PDI who didn't pick this up either! :roll: :shock:

The only lights I have on my SEL for outside lighting is puddle lights which shine the pavement area from the door mirrors & coming home & leaving lights from the front ...... haven't noticed any lights from the bottom of the door :eek:

I thinks what's been referred to is the thin strip of light along the edge of the sill protectors that's revealed when you open the door.

Hi - I think I'm being stupid! Where is the control for the ambient lighting - can't find it anywhere on my SEL!

Try this on the infotainment system 'Car/setup/lights/interior lighting'

Scroll it down or up.
Blue scroll bar on the right hand side of your screenshot shows you see just half of the options.

Dr Miles, sorry about that, it should be Car/Settings/Background Lighting.
