i'm semi-okay with DRLs, it's just the auto headlights i don't like

Some of the guys feel confident there is a way to turn them off...I hope they're right.
same here

my current DRLs ain't that bright (i've got colored bulbs), but in the Camaro, it could be an issue like that. there's times when it's a pain for everybody else when you have your lights on & can't turn them off, like at drive-in movies, car shows, or coming home late & lighting up everybody's rooms. the deal with the auto system on my truck is that it was over-sensitive & my tint didn't help. it would activate sometimes just because the sun was behind me. problem fixed & hope i don't have to do the same on my brand-new car.

i'm responsible enough to turn on my lights when the need arises, but i prefer to have the ability to consciously decide when to use them. before my mod, the only reason a switch was even there was for when the truck was off
