I'd be willing to pay to *not* have auto headlights. Lights that are keyed, that is, turn off if the key is out, is great. Otherwise, I hate auto headlights. With a passion. I bet 99% of the vehicles I see on the road today, when it's overcast, raining, snowing, foggy,what-have-you, and don't have their headlights on, is because "it's automatic, they'll turn on when necessary." Yeah right. Maybe they aren't so bad today, but is it really so hard to just turn them on manually?
[I will admit to being "that idiot" not that long ago in our Camry. Had been driving all day, was driving into the night, heavy traffic. The Camry has one of those late model displays, so the dashboard back lighting is always on. Ooops. My only excuse is that I might drive that car once/month. I blame the dashboard, not me... sure.]
