Automatic headlights are $30 away from any base model 2011 mustang. All you have to do is buy the part SW6659 for around $20-30 and plug it in and you know have automatic headlights. In my opinion a necessary upgrade considering the ease and price.
I have the auto headlights on my GT Premium, but I never use them. They are way too sensitive. They go on under every underpass, and shut off quickly. It must be annoying to other drivers in front of me, considering I go under about 20 on my commute each way every day.

Why... Are you unable to tell when it's dark enough to need headlights?
My base '11 GT has 'em, but I can't imagine why anyone would use them. Oh, well, different strokes...
I can see when its dark... But it is much easier to set them and forget them.

At the time I bought it, I did not know the switch & sensor were available, so no, I would not have bought it. My econobox had them, why not a stang???
I am not loyal to Ford. But I do prefer GM or Ford, and Ford has the better pony car right now.
And for the record, the post above states $30

This is one of the features that I have learned that I really want.

It's all about the convenience, such as lights on when wipers are on. And I suppose that your daugher and I would get along well.
And the battery never dies when you leave the lights on...
Say what you guys want, I stand by my word. If I had not been able to get the auto headlights, I would not have bought my stang. I would have kept my old car which was way better on gas and was paid for.

I installed the switch to get the fog light stuff, but don't use the auto-lights feature. In fact, I've had the car for two months, and have only used the headlights 3 times, and one of those times was simply to test the fog light/wiring install.
