Ambient lighting

Hi all! I was in a 2019 e450 Uber the other day (I got lucky!). I noticed the ambient lighting was automatically changing colors. I donít recall seeing this option in my car (Ď17 e300). Any idea how to make it do that? Also I read somewhere you can get the color to change red when you increase the climate control temp (and blue when lowering). So cool. Possible on mine?

refer to your owners manual on interior lighting. This is from the 2019 E450 Manual:

Setting the color
# Select Color.
# Set a color.
Adjusting the brightness
# Select Brightness.
# Set a brightness value.
Activating the brightness for zones
# Select BrightnessZones.
# Activate O or deactivate ™ the function.
The Display, Front and Rear zones can be set separately.
Activating multi-color lighting
# Select Multi-color.
# Activate O or deactivate ™ the function.
There are ten preset color combinations available.
Light and visibility
Activating multi-color animation
# Select Multi-colorAnim..
# Activate O or deactivate ™ the function. The chosen color combination changes at predefined intervals.
Activating dependency on air conditioning settings
# Select Climate.
# Activate O or deactivate ™ the function. If changes are made to the temperature setting in the vehicle, the color of the ambient lighting changes briefly.
Activating welcome lighting
# Select Welcome.
# Activate O or deactivate ™ the function. When the vehicle is unlocked, a special interior lighting sequence runs.

The 2019 is the ultimate for ambient lighting in that it adds the lighting to the air vents as well....looks like after boosters on a rocket. The color changing ambient lighting is the bomb!

Not in the sedan, sadly. We don't get rocket booster air vents. The rest, we do get.

We have the enhanced lighting system in our 19 CLS 450 and it is truly an awesome lighting display. MB deserves kudos on this standard equipment. It is like kid in a candy store.

The sedan (at least my 2018) is also missing a strip of ambient lighting ontop of the command screen, which looks great on the coupe (and the S class). That being said, the ambient lighting is a great feature IMHO.

That would indicate to me your 2018 does not have the digital instrument cluster, right? If the car has the analog cluster, you don't get Ambient lighting over or under the Comand screen. If you have the all digital instrument cluster, you get Ambient lighting on top and underneath.
