    Like most of you, I've had my headlights set to Auto since the day I picked up my S. About a week ago, I decided to turn off the lights since I do mostly day driving and my headlights only turn on when going under a bridge or pulling into my garage. Next day I noticed that my setting returned to Auto. I turned it off again and it seems to repeatedly default to Auto. Is this normal?

    I assume you're turning auto on/off in Settings? I don't think that should change unless it's part of a driver profile that is saved but even then it shouldn't work that way.

    Exterior lights are set to AUTO each time you start Model S. Touch these options to
    temporarily change the exterior light setting:

    So they always start on AUTO and selecting other settings is temporary until you deselect them or start the car again.

    Anyone else notice that when switching to "Off" position, the headlights don't immediately turn off? Or is it just my vehicle?

    There is a setting for lights on after exit, perhaps you have that on and are unaware
