Does anyone know why, when you turn the main beams on the side lights (parking lights) also come on, but when you turn the main beams off the side lights stay on and you have to turn them off using the side light switch ? I find this somewhat annoying :(

I think the idea is that you have to have your "parking lights" on with your headlights, but not the other way around. So you might want to turn off your headlights if your pulled to the side of the road but leave your parking lights on. If they turned off with the one switch you would momentarily would be completely dark until you found the parking light switch.

I suppose they could have used the old pull knobs that did the same thing, you just usually pushed through the parking lights only position.

And yes it is a bit annoying, but I have gotten used to it.
