Default 2018 308 SW, few questions

Hi guys

I just received my new 308 last week, and I absolutely love it! I have a few question though:

- Does the late 2017 facelift not have curve lights (fog lamps lighting up when turning at low speeds)?

- I have the Mood Lighting setting switched on in Comfort Lighting, but they're not on when its dark (foot wells, door handles and roof?), no matter what setting I seem to be using (on, off, different brightness settings) whats up with that?

The otherwise new happy 308 owner, Alexander

(PS had a 2016 208 before)

How can the 208 have curve lights, but not the 308? <img src="https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />

The main lights is set to auto. Not even when switching on manually.

AFAIK it can be done with Diabox (Curve lights).

Regarding mood lighting maybe your car doesn't have it, even you have an option to enable it.

Alright. I will have the dealer look at it on Tuesday when they fit it with a webasto heater anyway. Will report back.

So, no luck with either interior lights or curve lights.
The car is still awesome! Really nice to drive!
Webasto heater is awesome though

Thanks for replying guys.

Why would anyone ever want fog lights that light up depending which way you turn?

What benefit does it actually bring? All it seems to do is distract and confuse other road users.

Quite possibly the worst and most pointless car feature ever to have been invented.

It works under 40 kph. and lights up dark corners at night. Quite useful actually.

Maybe in some other cars. In ours 308s fog light is not so helpful when need to light up corner. Main lights (low) is good enough and have wide beam enough and any corner is visible.

Might be different on the newest (late 2017) model then. The fog lamp light up quite a lot to the side. Way more then the low beams.
