    Yup. That's night vision projected by a HUD. The rear of the European version has back up lights and red lights that turn on with the foglights.

    That japanese means the visual range or visibility.
    And the section looks like about headlight, foglight, auto lighting system, wiper system, etc.

    I read that the HUD (heads up display) was available of U.S versions of the DTS,

    Definitely something they should put into CTS/STS cars.

    They have both reverse and rear fog lights. They are required on every new car sold in Europe.

    The cruise control was there on the 03. I believe that it dissappeared on the 04.
