    Auto Headlights

    I was told that some ROW 997's have auto headlights instead of the pointless 'Home' position on the headlight switch...Does anyone have the 'auto' feature.

    Re: Auto Headlights

    No, but the HOME position is not "pointless". If you turn the switch to the Home position at night when you park your can the lights will stay on for the time that you set in the on board computer. This feature is called Home Path Lighting, one my wife really likes!

    19th hole,
    I only say pointles because it really doesn't require a dedicated spot on the light switch....Many cars have this function based around the alarm or door opening...All of which could be tweeked for preference by the PCM.... I'd just much prefer to have auto lights....

    Re: Auto Headlights

    No auto lights here either, another gadget I'm used to that Porsche don't seem to have yet. What I really miss (since I always drive with windows open), is being able to close them and the sunroof with the remote.

    Re: Auto Headlights

    The "Home" position is actually "Auto" on the Cayenne !

    I was amazed when I picked up my 997 to find this useless "Home" position on the light switch !

    Jfraser is right... that function (Home) can and should be controlled from the PCM... then you could have the "Auto" function on the 997... like the Cayenne !

    Thats my 2 bits worth

    A feature I like is when you turn the key one way and hold it there on the door lock all the windows, including sunroof and passenger windows, will open. My friends Audi has that and it is a very nice feature. Do the 997's have that as well?

    Actually, the 997's better, you can do it with the remote. ie hold the button down and the doors unlock and the windows open (doesn't open the sunroof though). Works with the key too. But it doesn't close the windows/sunroof when you lock the car, either with remote, or key...My BMW and my sister's Honda Accord can do this..
