2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Mood Light Options

May 30, 2012


Most people don't care about mood lighting in a car but I like it. It's silly, fun and I like having options. In our 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, the mood lighting switch is located to the left of the steering wheel and it's paired with the dimmer so you can go as conservative or crazy as you want.

Now, if you have more moods than angry, sad and calm, you're out of luck as there are only three color options (red, blue, white) to match the door panels and door speakers to your mood (or outfit). And if you want no part of it, there's always the shut-off option.

Personally I like the red lighting the best.

Now, prepare to have your mind blown. Heh.
