    Probably shopping for a TRD ORP once the new model year hits because I definitely want BSM. One other feature that is absolutely stunning to me that has not been on that trim level was the lack of auto on/off headlights (NOT auto hi-beams). Does anyone know for sure, one way or the other, if Toyota is finally adding that to the TRD ORP?

    Only pros and limiteds have the auto headlights option on the stalk. Why Toyota didn’t make it available for all models is unclear

    Why Toyota does a lot of things confuses me.

    No memory seat on anything but the Limited is another one. Also, no dual zone climate control on anything but the Limited or Pro.

    For that matter I don't get why on the GX 460 you have to get a Luxury to get MTS and Crawl Control. That one makes no sense at all.

    makes me wonder, if trd pros are really trd orp and the pro parts are simply added at the port .. do they add the stalk and dual zone there too ? Or is that configured at the factory ? I believe both require programming

    It's a long list...
    I can't believe it still isn't on the premiums or all the 2022 MY at this point. Since 2020, the models have come even closer as far as features (Smart key, etc) it is even easier for Toyota to do this. :confused:

    @Daytonaviolet to answer your question, the PRO is built with the Auto stalk and dual zone at the factory. It's only the cosmetic parts that get added post-port. The real difference in being able to have auto headlights comes from the programming in the main body MPX ECU. The solar sensor in the dash is the trigger for the auto headlights (Auto-high beam is the forward recognition/LDA camera) The Pro & Limited have the coding in the MPX enabled for the sensor input to toggle the headlight relay on or off based on ambient light. For the 2020+ folks that want auto headlights, it is probably as easy as putting the solar sensor in and swapping the MPX out for the TRD PRO/Limited MPX part numbers (Get a TRD PRO MPX if you have a TRD model, Limited for SR5, as there is other software based on the trim, and you CANNOT put a MPX from a smart key vehicle into a conventional ignition vehicle) As far as I know you need the programming in the ECU from the factory. No way to flash it via tech stream. The actual stalk on the column is mechanically the same for the switch. Only difference is whether "DRL" or "AUTO" is printed on it.

    Awhile back on the forum there were guys that were buying a $7 sensor on eBay and putting it in that little hole up on the dash to get auto headlights. There’s a spot on the dash by the windshield with a little cap on it. Pull off the cap, and it’s wired for auto dimming headlights. Or something.

    Anybody remember that thread?

    I know that thread. I don’t recall them receiving auto headlights from just adding the sensor. What I believe they got was auto dimming dash and radio.
