right on.

mine stay on, although one side is stronger, but still dim, after i turn my car off. Once the ECU powers down though...they should go out. If they dont and stay on, then i would say thats cool as hell. ....say you park in a not so good area, with the LEDs on you might detour some would be car vandals, plus, they dont consume enough power to drain your battery significantly anyway, so win win.
