i8 Ambient Interior Lighting - Not Functioning

Hello BF i8 Members,

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.

So, I have looked for this answer, and cannot find locate anything on this topic....please forgive me if I have overlooked this on the forum.

I just picked up (yesterday) a CPO 2015 BMW i8. Traded in my 2015 650i Convert. Just wanted to move on from the Vert, into something different. Love the i8.

I was in my garage looking over a few things with the car, and I noticed that the car has a interior lighting feature in the settings. I set this feature to on, selected a color, and turned the brightness all the way up. The lighting never came on. I used the extended settings and nothing showed. I even played with the dash brightness level on the left near the wheel and nothing change (in respect to the ambient lighting)

Is there something that I'm missing here? I asked my good friend who has an i8 if his works, and he stated yes. It was dark in the garage and I even had the headlights on.

Hopefully, this issue will be fixed under warranty; but I just wanted to see if any of the i8 owners on this forum could help.

Thank you in advance!

If you checked the box to enable interior lighting and it does not come on, then it sounds like there is an issue.

Thank you for the response. I figured as much. I will be taking it in for service in the morning.

Thanks again.
Quick Update:

The BMW Service Center replaced the module that controls the lighting, and now the ambient lighting works as expected.
