    Think as long as you have the rain sensing wipers, all you need is the Auto switch module. Think this has been done.

    Dont think this was ever standard though but not a 100% sure m8.

    Since you are adding toys to ur car why no try the cooled glove box?

    Dont it on mines and ok doesnt give the biggest of blasts but gives the glovebox a nice chill

    Come to think of it did the Prefacelift actually have auto headlights in the first place even as an optional extra?

    Best way. I have auto headlights but 99% of the time manually turn the headlights on / off as when set to automatic they come on way too early.

    Also it's dangerous when I travel to work in the morning if I leave them on the auto setting. Just before a junction there is an avenue of trees. The sensor decides to switch the headlights on just as I come out of the trees and then switch them off again. Meanwhile the car waiting at the junction thinks I've flashed him out onto the main road. EEEEEK!!!!

    Mine are on virtually all of the time if I leave the switch in the Auto position, they go off in bright sunlight. Can their sensitivity be adjusted?
