    It is called indirect night lighting. A nice green glow on the gear stick. "good eh".

    Pioneered by BMW I believe. If factory-fitted usually comes with auto-dipping rear-view mirror and rain-sensing windscreen wipers.

    ...had to read this twice and I still don't know if I get it

    I've got the rear view mirror that auto-dimms (goes kind of greenish) when cars drive behind you at night with bright lights on, but where is this little light that you speak of???

    It's underneath the mirror - in the centre and shines downwards onto the gear lever area - it'a a sort of orangey light on my SRi - very relaxing

    The mirrors were pioneered by a company called Gentex. They also make for the aftermarket. They did have a version with garage door opener transmitter built in on early Vectra's. I did try to order one for mine but it came out at £450.
