Sorry, slightly off topic but.
As horatio says its a bit of a "stupid" feature.
When we bought our brand new PIcasso, Citroen marketed it as a safety feature. I couldn't tell the difference, on the test drive I asked the salesman about it.

He drove ata bout 60mph, slammed the brakes on and said " there did you hear the voume drop" - I still couldn't really hear the difference.
This was a feature that was either on or off, couldn't be user set, had to be programmed by a dealer! A bit like their speed sensitive wipers - when on intermittant the wipers went faster or slower dpending on your speed, irrelevant to the amount of rain falling. So it could be very light drizzle and wipers on full pelt at 60mph, or very heavy rain, but doing 20mph the wipers would be on intermittant. ANother "safety" feature according to Citroen. THey stopped marketing these "features" as safety feature after a while - wonder why? As with everything else Citroen, it didn't work properly.
