Change color of orange interior led lighting?

I thought I read somewhere on this forum that there are 3 color options for the interior ambient led lighting that is built into the door panels and dash. The current color is orange.

I can't seem to find anything about changing it in the manual.

Anybody?

In the lighting choices sub-menu, you can choose essentially Orange, White or Blue (Solar, Neutral or Polar). The specifics of how to accomplish this can be found on page 279 of the Owners Manual.

It's changed via the center console (pg 279 of the on-line manual)

Setting the ambient lighting color
1) Press the < or > button on the steering wheel to select the Sett. menu.
2) Press the up or down button to select the Lights submenu.
3) Press OK to confirm.
4) Press the up or down button to select the Ambient Light Color function.
5) Press Ok to confirm.
6) Press the up or down button to set the color to SOLAR, NEUTRAL or POLAR.
7) Press the OK button to save the setting.

It does, but I don't like that the rest of the ambient lighting doesn't change colors. So you'll have the blue bar below the wood grain, but the ambient lights for the door handle, cupholder, floorboards are always orange.

I can't seem to find colors in my menu. I have an '11. Maybe they weren't able to be changed then?

Orange in the Summer, Neutral in the Fall, and Blue in Winter. That's my way of living large.

This is an X166 feature, the X164 (MY 2007-2011) did not have this.

Hey Jim;

I have a 2008 S550. would LOVE to have changed the color to blue or perhaps even see what red is like but it seems there was no choice in 08. Either way, the white light is lovely. Never had it before.
