Re: What are these.....? (Needsdecaf)

I'll buy the jacket hanger idea (strange location), but the "ambient lighting" thing? You can't see any light from it unless you put your hand right in front of it, in fact you can't see IT unless you put your hand in front of it.

That it keeps the center console from being totally dark, and illuminates your hand (and whatever you're doing with it) when it's in that area. <p>It's present on many European cars these days, among others. My MDX has it and I'm not sure of it's usefulness.

My 2000 Audi A4 used to have it. Was helpful, as you say, you can see the buttons better, or if you have something in the center console area and you need to get it.
