  • Do we have these features?

    Clearly, I don't drive at night or in the rain much if at all in the C8.

    Do we have auto brights?
    Do we have auto wipers? rain sensors

    It didn't seem so when I tried to mess with it. I thought I would confirm...wife has the car today, so I can't go check.

      Auto bright would be a nice feature. Have them on my Lexus.

        "auto bright" = automatic high beams?

          I am be the odd person out, but on every vehicle of ours (several DD’s we have had and the one we do now), I leave the auto wipers on hoping this manufacturer has figured out how to time them right, but invariable after a few days of them being on when I do want and not on when I want them, I turn off that feature. Living in Oregon, the land of winter rain, these systems get a lot of testing actually about 8 months a year here — but again in our current DD I have turned that function off.

          And again many may (again) think I an nuts.

            Loved BMW auto wipers. Wish the C8 had them. Helps a lot when severity of rain varies frequently.

              I like the ones on our Cadillac XT4 but you can't just leave them on. If you do they'll occasionally come on when there's no rain. When it does rain I just click the wipers up one click and they work great from there.

                I can’t stand either of those features as well. I turn them off too. Auto bright fails on hills and can’t work fast enough not to blind the person climbing up the opposite side. Same with curves.
                Auto wipers are worse than a spastic colon. I have had them on high cars to work trucks, and they all work differently and inconsistently. One min nothing the next second they’re on full blast and it’s only misting.

                    It's her car 😏 I'm just the eye candy 🤣

                    She ordered it, picked the color, interior, wheels...all the cosmetic stuff. I added the driving options we would need.

                      I purchased a 2019 Audi A4 the day after my retirement. Never had Auto Wipers, pleasantly surprised the very first time they decided to turn on.
                      I am totally amaze of how accurate it is, light mist to Florida Downpour.
                      I will miss the feature, but expect the C8 to satisfy in so many other ways.

                        Sounds like Audi has it figured out.

                          I agree there are many, many features we’ll appreciate well beyond these two features. It is odd though that my ‘21 Chevy Equinox (Company Car) came with auto high-beams as standard equipment, yet the C8 does not.

                            Yet, the Equinox doesn't have a 500HP aluminum V8, aluminum and carbon fiber chassis, aluminum double a-arm suspension with coil-overs, etc., etc. Every feature added costs money. IMHO, GM spent the money in the right places for the C8.

                              When driven in the rain (assuming people actually do that) where does the water go in the rear lid vent openings (coupe)? Never have seen one with it open but wondered if there was some type of gutter under the openings.
                              Save the wave.
