Please, please, please - resist the temptation!

Rant over. Sorry if I offended those who think this is cool. Just my opinion, but I'm an old fart and everyone ignores me anyway.
Totally agree with you if the feature is abused. However, I plan to only use it when I need more lighting when reversing. Notice in no way did I mention use it to blind tailgaters, etc. as that would be abusing the feature.
