Default Cooooooooooool!

My Bonneville continues to suprise me with interesting, convenient little touches. Today as I was driving through the nasty rainy Ohio weather in a relatively "blah" and bored mood, it stopped raining so I turned my wipers off. Lo and behold the headlights clicked off and the DRLs came on. I thought it was probably just a bit brighter outside so the light sensor clicked them off.

So it starts raining again and I turn the wipers back on and bingo - theres the headlights. So now here I am smiling in my Bonnie, fascinated by the fact that my headlights turn on after the wipers are on for about 5 seconds or so. Thats pretty darn neat. Imagine what the driver in front of me was thinking as my headlights click on and off 25 times, lol.

Hold down your wiper handle to the 'mist' position, and the lights will come on the same way (after the 5 seconds or so).

yep...I realized that as well earlier, haha.

Wonder what other little oddities I'll find along the way (like the fact that I didnt know that my sunroof 'vented' until a few months ago, lol)

That is a very cool Feature. I would have been playing with it too.
