    I do the same. Parking lights when I want more visibility of my car, but I don't yet need headlights.

    Thankfully those little white bulbs that light up when you have the parking lights on are way too dim to mistake for your actual headlights, too.

    My question to you is, do you use your running lights or do you always use headlights?


    Here is a pic of the weather. It looks clearer than it was.

    I'm redundant witha decision on this as I have my lights on AUTO all the time so they make up their own mind. Going under a tunnel they come on automatically then go off once I emerge from the tunnel.
    At first I thought this was too gimmicky but now I like it.

    Not sure how fast the sensor is but you probably drive into the tunnel without your headlights on...
    where as you should turn on your lights before the tunnel....

    That's not a legal requirement in all tunnels in the UK. I have my light switch permanently on AUTO and it makes its mind up. Under a four lane tunnel the sensor is pretty good and it'll switch the lights on.
