HATING Ambient Lighting...

Maybe I'm the only one, but I HATE ambient lighting AND how bright the radio/MyLink displays are.

I find them piercing, invasive, distracting, annoying, and interfere while driving.

I turn my lighting down to the lowest levels possible and it's still not enough.

Am I the only one who hates this stuff?

I don't like it. It's an unneeded distraction. Besides, I don't need to see my feet when I'm driving.

It doesn't bother me at all ... your feet when driving? what lighting is that? I guess there may have been an option for that? ... does it really stay on while you are driving? I bought some leds for under dash to do my foot wells but I plan to hook them up so they come on when my door opens ... I figure that has to be possible, but is also the reason I haven't hooked it up yet because I haven't wanted to mess with it ... now that it is warm, it is back on my list ... if I could only keep the **** grass from growing lol.

I love the ambient lighting. I find myself waiting for night to come to see my doors light up.

It is a little bright. The door lighting can be distracting too. I do turn mine down when it gets real dark out too. It is something that you need to get used to I guess. If you couple all of that with the limited view windows it can be distracting. I would rather have the little glow rings in the cup holders like my Challenger had.
