    With the white lit dials, at night I find I need them turned down on the dimming control, but that also dims the lovely red accent lighting on the door handles and roof cluster.

    So my question is... Can VCDS code the lighting so as to keep the accent lighting bright yet allow for the dash including gauges, stereo & switches etc to be adjustable with the dimmer roll switch?

    Doubt it, think the variable resistor dial governs all but the footwell lighting.

    Is a shame though as dash lights are way too bright whereas red door LEDs aren't quite bright enough.

    Maybe Nige might know of a workaround?
