Ambient lighting with Black interior

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I remember reading a thread (here or elsewhere) about the F10 ambient lighting not showing up/being very hard to see in black interior'ed cars. For the life of me, I can't find that thread again.

Does anybody have a pic of the M5, black interior, with ambient lighting on?

Is it hard to see (sure, harder than on greystone, but does a black interior totally kill the effect?).

Here is the thread I was talking about before:

I can see how silverstone, champagne, and platinum light up brightly. I'm very curious to see how black, cohiba, and maybe sakhir light up. Anybody??

I had ambience lighting in the interior of my black leather S-class and it still added something. You can't have it both ways - black is a great colour for hiding dirt but it can't be bright at the same time.
