OK, This is something I keep seeing all the time and I am always scratching my head. Were there some years in 04+ models that instead of the headlights coming on the parking lights come on instead? All the people I see running around without their headlights on cannot be turning them off just to run the parking lights. At one point in time it looked like it was only the cars with FogLamps, however that theory was blown since I have seen a few here and there in the last few months.
Personally I would prefer just the parking lamps coming on instead of the headlights (without having to do it by messing with the staulk everytime I get in to drive). Plus I do have intentions of adding Halo's so what would be the point if the headlights pop on?
