Lighting packs

Hi all, picked up my new golf 8 today. 2nd one I’ve had due to a massively faulty one first time round (early batch I’m told).
Anyway…

I have just seen in the shop on the car that you can buy the “Dynamic Background Lighting” pack… I have done the free trial and can’t see anything different. Does anyone know what this actually is? I obviously have the lighting in the car and already have the 30 colours “mood lighting pack” but what is this new pack?
Thanks!

Hi there I thought VW removed this from the shop, they were having problems with it. I checked on my shop and it is not there anymore.
Anyway here is an explanation from VW:

There are two expansion services to the Basic Ambient Lighting (which only has 4 colours) in your Volkswagen Golf:
One is the expansion of the basic ambient lighting that enables the interior to be lit according to mood, thanks to the individual choice of colour for a special and individual atmosphere. (the service is also known as "multicolor").
The other is the functional ambient lighting. This extension of the basic ambient lighting include warnings or information for the driver are displayed via colour signals and ambient lighting. Functions can be visualised in colour, e.g:
- Staging locking/unlocking.
- Acceleration visualisation in sports mode.
- Visualisation of child safety lock and window regulator lock.
- Feedback open door while driving.
- Display of hazard warning flashing on ambient lights.

We would also like to inform you that the Ambient Lighting Effect (Additional Functions) has additional features e.g. showing the acceleration via the ambient light.
Dynamic Background Lighting expands basic background lighting to include intuitive display of various functions. Depending on equipment, this includes warnings and information such as the acceleration indicator or door warning.
The expansion of the basic background lighting provides an intuitive display of various functions, allowing you to program them.

Hey Massimo,
Intresting stuff. Can’t say I’ve found anywhere to program anything… I wonder if they are still experiencing issues with it. I’ll give another go tonight when It’s dark and I’ll provide an update.
Cheers!
