Pics/Vids request of option 563

Hi everybody,
Anyone with the interior light pack, option 563?
Where you can change the color of the light strips in the dash and doors through the iDrive. I haven't seen it live but would really like to, so if anyone has it, could you please post some pics or video. It would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I don't think this is even an option in the US, but in my car, through the iDrive, you can change the ambient lighting from either classic (orange) or modern (white). This changes the lights in the side door compartments and front cup holders for me.

From what I understand, does 563 give you additional lighting plus the ability to change the color of your ambient lighting?

That's exactly what I would like to see.

Yep.
It's included in one of the packages but also available as a stand alone option.

I'll snap some pics when I get in the car. If the option is to get what I have, then it really isn't a big deal. I keep it on classic anyways because the white light clashes with the orange lights from the dash and center console.

Here you go. This option changes the lights in the front cup holders, all four interior door handles, the side storage compartments in the front and back, and the lights under front seats for the footwells in the back.

I'm located in New York and this is a US spec car. The option should be in Settings - Lighting - Ambient

Hmmm... must be a difference between 2014 to 2015. I don't have that option for Ambient. Bummer.
