I noticed when opening driver's door - only the driver's side round map light and center rectangular light comes on, yet when opening the either rear door, or the passenger door, generally all the map lights (both outside round and center rectangular) come on. Seems that once, if I recall, when opening the passenger door, only the passenger side light and rectangular center came on - but usually all are coming on with all door openings with the exception of opening the driver's door. Every car I've owned up until this point has had all interior lights illuminate with any door opening. Audi is very intuitive and may have this programed uniquely for the driver's door for some reason (slightly more focus of light on the driver?). Anyone else with an A7 notice this pattern? Thank you for your time.
Yup. One of the first things I noticed actually. Seems to provide light for the door opened.
