    Yes, 6 flashes. However, since I have to have my battery changed, I'm going to try and get all the TIS listed updates applied. Maybe the new/current software update is 4 in tow mode?

    So, it sounds to me like what is needed is a change to the DLR lights. Maybe they need to be swapped out for 2 element lamps which could be used to support a FTP when the headlamps are not active. Just throwing a design change idea out.

    The HID low beam/high beam setup works really well on the 07', we just don't have that feature anymore. Have to see how it bothers me as I put miles on.

    HID lights up and stays on when you hit fob for 10-15 seconds
    OK took another look at it, top is parking, middle is DRL and bottom is HID.

    You have to really take a good look at it because of all the reflectors in the different areas.

    In Ohio, passing is considered an insult and if you give any indication that you are about to pass, the car in question will automatically speed up to prevent you from doing so. This is when my LT1 comes in handy. They'll speed up if you don't warn them, either.
    My Cadillac is the only car I've ever had with FTP. I can't really figure out what's so great about this option; I've always found that just using the light switch to turn the lights on and off worked just as well. Oh well, I guess people must be too lazy to reach over to the lightswitch.
