As it is - even when they are working - those lights DO NOTHING. They are DRL's (normally - I coded that to be my AE's) or flash-to-pass highbeams. That's it. So you could go your entire driving career never using them, if you don't high-beam-flash people. Sort of dumb. Cornering lights - those sound like fun.

Pre LCI sedans used them as DRLs and flash to pass. LCI sedans 2009+ use them as cornering lights. However, cornering lights have the beam sweeping to the sides, so they definitely do not work or look like high beams.
