Traffic stop and driver conduct-- how should you behave?

Question for LEO's all the people that carry. If you're pulled over by a LEO how should one behave? I've read a couple of suggestions but I'm wondering what the glock pro'ers think. Here's what I've heard/read:

-- Roll down all windows
-- Interior lights on if it's at night.
-- Hands stay on the steering wheel until asked for license/registration.
-- I realize it'll vary from state to state whether or not you're legally obligated to declare if you have a loaded firearm in the car. For me, when I'm asked by the LEO I would hand them my drivers license as well as my CCW license, then answer all questions he/she has while I keep my hands visible and on the wheel.

Does this seem reasonable so far?

Thanks in advance

Cops will not always know if you are carrying or not. That depends on your state, and obviously if you are driving a car registered to you or not.

My preferred method is window down, my right hand on the wheel and my left hand out the window holding both my driver & carry licenses, with the carry license on top so they clearly see what it is. My state requires me to inform that I'm carrying.

This works a lot better for me than any way I've heard someone using words. Only had to do it once so far and it went fine.
