As 'accepting' of what is truly important in Life as I've been trying to become all of my adult life, I'm still anal about certain matters and things like this is one of them.
I don't know if it's a VIN number thing or a country thing - but the momentary twist of my light stalk, turns off the automatic headlights. So what I do when I go to start the car (which is in a garage), is that I first press the START button but without touching the brake. This turns the car on to ACC mode. In that position, I rotate the lights stalk - this turns off the automatic headlights. Then I depress the brake pedal and press the START button to start the car. Voila - the vehicle is now operational and the Xenon lights never came on.
I'm not an avid reader, so reading the owner's manual is taking me forever. Fortunately, I read about the ability to turn off the automatic lights, early on.
