I'm not sure what VW calls it but I had a Vectra once that had what it called "Puddle lighting".
This was a subtle orange LED build into the interior mirror, this cast a dim puddle of light around the centre console area which helped you to find your way around at night.

I want to do something similar in my T4 as I don't drive it very often and even though I've owned her for 10 years I still forget where reverse is!
I normally listen for the BEEP as my reserving sensors kick in but when towing I disable the sensor thus have no audible verification that I've actually found reverse. :D

Anyone done this - if so please post up piccies.T:

I put 2 x 12" strips on my seat bases at the front (see bottom of this thread)

I bought 5 metres on a roll from ebay and just soldered the wires on the end after cutting on the lines. Lots of people say you need resistors etc and you might well do, but these have been on there almost a year and come on with the lights so always on at nighttime when driving.
