You can override them in the GM, I do it in my corvette all the time. As a rule here in Chicago I drive with fogs/park lites always on cloudy days and very bright sunny days just park lites and daytime running lites.: : I also don't drive with the lights on during daylight, but I DO wish that BMW would add a sensor that automatically turns your headlights on and off when you drive in dark parking garages or tunnels. A number of GM cars do this now, and it's pretty helpful, actually.

: I agree, but I hope that BMW does NOT do it like GM. I hate the fact that you have no way to override the automatic system in the GM cars.

: I much prefer the Lexus method, in which the headlight switch has an additional setting of "Auto", where the car decides when the headlights need to be on. This allows the driver to still force the headlights into "off" mode if neccessary.
