It would sometimes be nice to override the automatic as they can come on a bit early. When angel eye halos would look good with parking lights only.

this topic has been discussed many times before.
For example:

Dillcc, I am glad to hear the mod worked for you. I am like you in the fact that I like full control. One switch that is wired in with the photo sensorcould be set at auto of off. I am glad to hear it workd. I will work on some "patches".

The switch would definitely be the way to go for me. I can't see a need to have the lights off while I'm in gear, but ya never know. So the option would be nice...
