Interior looks great at night, although the light up kidneys are a bit excessive, I assume this is only for approaching/leaving the vehicle, and isn't lit while driving?

Agreed. It's pretty interesting used for approach lightening.

I didn't even think of that! Will be even worse, those tri-color grill slats are my least favorite modification that owners make, especially on non-M-Sport cars it looks even worse!

Ambience light anywhere on a car totally wastes money and focus. Next locations will be wheel wells and undercarriage.

I'm very disappointed in this apparent design direction.

Looks like the ricey stuff kids in civics would do in the 1990s. What's next, under car neon...

My sense of decorum tells me this is too much bling .... but deep down inside me ... I like it... just give me analog gauges with my heads-up display, and I'll be happy.

X6 LED grill is omitted on the F96 due to the M open double slant grill style. Maybe if a G06 LED grill was retrofitted on a F96 and programmed, but why?

People are always willing to change things.

Like Japan and the flashy Lamborghini's

I personally wouldn't do it.

They already do that sort of thing here in Florida. I find it quite garish and completely distracting on the road at night.

That grill looks like a terrible kitsch to me.
Like those people that put chrome bands and lights all over.
In Europe gypsies use to to that jut to look different.

Very distasteful from my point of view, and I wouldn’t buy the car because of that. I am not a flashy, look at me kitschy guy.
There is nothing serious, elegant or classy with that light. Nothing.

Ambient lighting is nice. Provides easier access to things during night driving
