    Thumbs up Sidelights for left or right side?!

    Hi All,

    I submitted a post about a week ago regarding the function that turns on the sidelights on just one side of the car ... and ever since I've been thinking "What would you use that for?"

    Has anyone got any suggestions of when it would be useful to turn the sidelights on for just one side?

    Cheers!

    When you are parked on a dark rural type road, it's a parking light, used more on the continent, not so much here.

    I use them if parked on street, even if there are streetlamps. Main problem I have is folk knocking on the door to let me know I've left my lights on...

    My Cavs had it too - found by accident when leaving indicator stalk on when leaving car - at least Vec beeps when it's set!
