F32 Ambient Lighting

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Does anyone have photos of the ambient lighting in the F32? There are a lot of photos of the F30 ambient lighting but not so much the F32.

Is there lighting in the footwells like the F30? Does the door panel lighting continue into the rear seating area (like the e92)?

Thanks in advance!

I'll try and take some photos today, when I get back in the garage.
From what I can remember (but I haven't looked at it closely) there's no ambient lighting in the rear seating area, nor do they have anything on the B pillar like they do on the F30s (LEDs under the "AIRBAG" sign on the the B pillar).

There's light in the footwells - I think

I'll recheck today anyway - I didn't really pay close attention to this though

The lighting effect actually does continue into the rear seating area similar to the E92 but it is located under the arm rest now instead of above it like the E92.

In my opinion the ambient lighting in the F32 is not as distinctive (bright) as the E92. This is even more noticeable when you set the ambient lighting to white.

yes there is lighting in the foot well area, as well as the rear seats, and the sides continue all the way to the bank.

It is much "softer" than it was on the E92.

Yep, there's indeed lighting in the rear of the car. I hadn't noticed it before.

But there's no lighting on the B pillar like in the F30.

Here are some photos I took with my potato...
