Couple of things my 8G had that 9G doesnt

Hi,

I've just noticed the glove box doesnt have an air con vent which was really handy in the summer, does it get air flow in there anyway or was that idea dropped for some reason?

More importantly, the reading lights dont switch on and off with the doors, this I do need with kids in the winter its going to be very difficult to see when getting them in and out with the one light in the middle, there isn't a switch so am I missing something in the software that pairs the reading lights to the centre ceiling light? I cant find anything obvious.

If not is there a plug and play bulb that I can buy thats a lot brighter and reliable? I had LED internal bulbs in my old car and some started flickering after a few months.

Thanks

I miss the chill cool glovebox but it didn't get used as much as it should really.

That would be awesome, and if not I just need to get a downward facing one to ensure the light fills the cabin?

I got mine from Amazon. 501 w5w T10 Canbus sidelight bulbs, 12v, 8v (pack of 2)

Just enter that much easier than uploading a picture or link. Had mine in since January no issue. Lights entire cabin with a nice LED light. I've got a 2 year old and before installing this bulb couldn't even see in the back now can see perfectly.

Ive never understood the needs for AC in the glove box. I doubt anyone is that anal they decant their fresh food into the glove box for the trip home from Morrisons.

I think you've missed the point of it, it's not for your shopping unless you can survive a week on a block of cheese and a loaf of bread.

For families going on a day out it was very useful and I used it a fair bit.
