Quote from a googled webpage:
"Follow me home lights - Allows headlights to stay on for a pre-determind time after the drivers door is closed. Customer Benefits: Added security for occupants when walking away from the car in unlit car park or on driveway at night."
And there was me thinking it was some new method of car flirting!
All you need to do is to take the ignition key out before you turn the lights off and hey presto the lights stay on for about 30secs. Nice feature but you do get plenty of people telling you that you've left your lights on
MINI, RX8 and MX5 - Done those............. It's now TTime
My 3 week old Cooper has both the follow me home lights and the auto locking enabled as standard. Since I normaly park in a lit garage, the former is rarely any use (tell next winter anyway) while I find the latter a touch anoying, but not anoying enough to visit the dealer just to change it
