    It seems like LED park lights is less hassle than a relay. Kind of like to get a third brake light also. I don't like anything on top of the louver, but I don't want to interfere with my mirror either. (I can't back this car up worth shit.)

    I agree. (Not to mention less draw on the charging system.)
    Handling ~4 amps isn't THE problem with D main light switches anyway -- It's the 4 decades they've been doing it.
