Default Ambient lighting new colours

I assume the ambient lighting on the ceiling and in the foot wells etc. are fiber optic. On my A8 D4 you can select white, warm white or red. I was wondering if there's any way of modifying the system to have another colour such as blue light etc.?

You can certainly upgrade the footwell lights, I have done so in my D3 using a Bluetooth LED colour changing kit from Trups at EM Tuning. You can open an app, connect to Bluetooth and then select any colour you like for the front and rear footwell lights

Is this to reflect the mood of the client in the back, or the chauffeur.

Thatís interesting. Iíve just messaged Trup to find out if he can supply a kit for my D4. Iím keen to get this done ASAP. Nothing on their web site (that I could find) regarding the light changing footwell lights. Iíve asked him about this as well. Hope he can supply them. Feeling excited.

Thanks mate! Great photos. Unfortunately Trups doesnít sell that kit anymore as he says not enough people wanted one. Iíve just brought a bespoke LED interior light kit from him and canít wait for it to arrive. Iíll post some photos once fitted.

Thanks again
