I love the LED headlights and always turn the headlights on when I'm driving (even during the day).

On my Audi if you left the lights on there was an audible warning noise and on exiting the car the DRL's and rear LED lights remained on.

On the Mini however if you leave the switch "ON" then all the lights go off.

So my question is, is it okay to leave the switch "ON"?

With nothing being lit up I'm assuming this wont affect the battery?

Yep, they'll go off with you lock it.

My RCZ did the same, go off automatically.

When you press the ignition, they'll come back on.

I noticed that if I leave my Headlights in the ON position and shut off the engine the lights will shut OFF.....but when I open the doors the headlights will turn ON and wait until I turn ON the ignition. I noticed that also when doing this the headlights will go up and down to align themselves. Something that they do not do when I turn on the headlights under normal circumstances.

Are you sure about the alignment ? Not that I've ever tested it, but the alignment must happen when you turn the ignition on, even if the lights are off.

I honestly have checked this over and over again. To my surprise,
I have never seen the headlight go up and down when turning on them manually. I checked this on the wall in my garage. It only happens when the headlights are ON, engine turned OFF, then when starting the engine again the headlights will go ON and go up and down....weird. On my 2013 Coupe, the headlights go UP and DOWN every time the headlights go ON.
