No, no way found as of yet. They are linked to the door handle LEDs so they are both on together.

Hmm, I haven't been successful at coding those to stay in reverse. Did the euro led no problem, it's the simple shit that's giving me grief.

They don't like it because car and driver review found it a little too much...

Everyone is different. Back in the 60 and 70s I think some English cars had backlit emblems on the front - it's just how it was.

I want to get the backlit door sills and the LED door projectors too

I, too like these a lot and wish I could keep them on at night. I did learn that if you press and hold the center light switch for 3 seconds (center button between the reading lights) it turns off all of the interior welcome lights (overhead and footwell, as well as seat logo).

My preference would be to disable the overhead lights but have the seat emblem logo stay lit up. Unfortunately I don't think there is a way to do this, even with coding. I do have my car coded to leave the welcome lights on in reverse. If anyone figures out a way to do this, let me know!

The seat emblems are wired with the door handle lights. So if you want the seat emblems to stay on, just drive in reverse everywhere
