headlights switch

As a new Alfa owner, please excuse me for this really silly queston but I'd just like to check if there's any problem with leaving the headlights SWITCHED on after switching off the ignition. As the lights automatically go out when ignition is switched off, there's no danger of draining the battery in any way is there?

Re: headlights switch

No, but I have read it can shorten the life of the bulbs if you constantly restart the car with them on, particularly those easy to get to (and expensive) H6W sidelights!
