We are discussing the DRLs though, correct?I thought I had noticed that during the day, when it is sunny and bright here in Arizona, and lights were set to "Auto" that the lights would turn off.
At least the instrument panel seemed to indicate that the headlights were off.
We actually have DRLs in the US. Some US cars can turn them off or don't have them.If it's possible, it will be with them in the off position. Since you don't have DRLs in the U.S. I'd be interested to know if they actually turn off.
