    Its a mod which keeps your dipped beams/front fog lights on for a preset period of time, so for example, lighting your way to the front door.

    Were these ever even offered as an option on the B6?

    just did a quick search and its a massive and very expensive job if you want to do it, I found a thread on audiforum.us where a guy has retrofitted it to his B7, the mod involves fitting the Auto Lights system which means a new windscreen, rear view mirror with sensors, new modules and re-wiring

    Isn't that guide for an A3?

    It would be good if it worked on the B6 A4, maybe I'll give it a go!

    Not quite - existing Windscreen will work.

    You need the "Auto Dimming RVM" with the compatible light sensor feed to a compatible "Power Control Unit", new "Auto Light Switch", new "Coming Home Light Switch", and quite a bit of rewiring.
    Looked at it too but decided against it at the time. Based on what I know now it's probably not as difficult as I originally thought.
    This OEM option was available on the A4/B6 - my mate has it on his.

    I do have the original instructions from the original nav-plus.us (now audiforum.us) web site with all the photo's which do not seem to be there now - PM me if anybody wants a "pdf" copy via email.

    i already have the Auto Dimming RVM and there is a wire that runs from it and goes under the headlining, where does it go to ? is this part of the wiring system that connects to the Auto Lights feature ?

    If your Auto Dimming RVM has an on/off push button switch (8E0 857 511 nnn) and feeds 4 wires down the A-pillar - one will be the light sensor feed which comes from Pin 3 of the mirror connector to the power control unit, Pin 1. also to the power control unit (actual 12v feed) & Pins 4. & 5. Wing Mirror auto dipping signals to each front passenger door.
    [Note: nnn = 4PK for black, E59 for grey, F77 for blue & 1RS for beige]

    The non-switch "black" mirror (4B0 857 511C 01C) have no light sensor output so not compatible - they use a three wire feed down the A-pillar where Pin 3. Reverse Gear Signal / Pins 4. & 5. Wing Mirror auto dipping signals to each front passenger door. Have retrofitted this type mirror to mine.

    Not a problem - you need the switch for just the "Coming Home Lights On/Off" - Part No. 8E2 919 094 B 5PR (this is the RHD version).
