Idrive lighting options ?

In settings there is an option of either modern or Xline for the ambient lighting, what is the difference? I have switched between the 2 settings and I don't see any difference.

I have also seen pictures of BMW's where the dash instrumentation ie: the speedometer and the information such as temp & MPG's are in white instead of the red, is there a way to change it to white in the X1?

Thanks for any info

Did you get the optional lighting package? I believe that's the only way you can get the colour change.

Yeah, same here. I've got the X-Line with lighting package & can't see a difference between the two settings.

White instead of red? I'm all for that if it can be done somehow.

On the F01 that just happens automatically depending if it's light or dark outside.

I have it in the sport line, but in the xline too I believe the only lighting that changes is in the front pocket of the gear box, foot pedal/rest area, and inside all the door pockets. Changing from white to orange. The idrive itself or the other orange glowing lights (gauges and near the center rearview mirror) stay the same

I don't have the lights package, and don't see any changes either between xline and classic.

Looks like this is option 563 on the Canadian build sheet, which is part of the executive package. No executive package for me, so no ambient lighting.

My M Sport Line doesn't have the option to change interior light colors. NBD, I like the amber light, but FYI for anyone curious.
