There are two reversing lights on the XC90 but they're still utterly useless.

I think that is probably my biggest disappointment, as good as the 360 cameras are; At night they are pretty poor quality, the cameras are just very noisy, far too lower Lux, and dark in the dark, so for the rear great reversing lights would help , as for the front well you have the headlights so they are not too bad, but for the sides, when you are near any dark surface you cannot see anything.

As I drive a lot to night and parking etc. it is frustrating.

My AMG GLA the rear was far far better at night, in terms of vision and quality, very high quality camera and lens.

Foglights/turn lights light up the sides pretty good when reversing. But yeah, not on T8s..

I thought the V90s were undersized but yesterday I was following a 17 plate VW beetle and they were even worse.

Followed a new VW Golf - almost didn't see the tiny turn indicators - ridiculous size!!!
