tiny, little light inside the hi-beam housing

I just noticed today this tiny, tiny bulb at the top of where the hi-beams are. They light up when I turn my headlights (low-beams) on.

Anyone have any input on those? Maybe they can be changed, too (haha)? They remind me of BMWs, where some have those light "rings" next to the low-beams.

Every car on the road has them. They are for being able to see your car in low-light situations when headlights are not on. If you turn the headlight control one click instead of two, only the parking lights will be lighted.

oh, this whole time, I thought when you guys say "parking lights", I thought it was the front turn signals. I had an Integra, and the "turn signals" are on when the headlights are on. Then they glow brighter when you actually use the signals.

Thanks for resolving my confusion. :)

Yeah, some vehicles have a dual filament bulb that serves as both turn indicator and parking light.
