    Not such a dumb question as I was wondering if the ambient lighting was going to be on the V as well as it is not mentioned anywhere. Glad to hear that it will be standard.

    It's a little strip of white LEDs underneath the dash and door trim, footwells and door pulls that glows faintly at night. It's one of the cooler "neat-o!" features of the CTS to show your friends, and makes a nice atmosphere at night.

    Well i placed my order 10/06 and now i was just told that it is on hold because of the wheels that the recaro is no longer an issue but that it won't go into production but they said i could change my order i am just scared if i change the wheels to get it i will have to start over on the waiting list.

    Is it a string of led lights, or is it like the bmw halos or cts lights pipes...a tube with led's at either end causing the tube to light up. Just curious...

    I honestly have no idea, since the light source is concealed under the trim panel and therefore not visible. Judging by the uniformity of the light I would assume it's a pipe with LEDs at either end (like the CTS's headlight piping or BMW halos), but that's just a guess.
