Well if you're brightness adjustment was as bad as ours...

Also if say you were driving with parking lamps/fogs at dusk, it would be nice to know when your auto headlights come on.

On that note, they should decouple the fogs turning on the dash lights. I HATE that.

I can only imagine what she would want you to do while the car was in autopilot mode..... maybe its better that you have to drive it. (I know the back seats are big enough.....)

I'll second the LSX motor, but I would go with an LS7 with the rear mounted tranny (forget the name)

This is his gf? Is someone jealous? lol. Whats wrong with doing that? yes the back seats are big enough and while its on auto pilot you can climb in the back and have at it and all without getting in trouble for pulling off to the side of the road and getting a ticket for that. at least the cops would have a moving target. lol.
