    Bit of a strange one coming from the B6 I now have the B7 and my lights options are off,auto side and full beam on the dial, however I have noticed that even when the dial is placed in the auto position my side lights come on when I am driving. This also applies to if I have the dial to the Off position, So question is what is going on is this normal and just a safety feature, or something else and does it have a negative impact on the normal wear and tear of the bulbs?

    Sounds like your lights have been coded with sidelight DRL's

    Sounds like a fault to me......

    Side lights should be:

    Off - off
    Auto - off, unless it's dark
    Side - on
    Full - on

    Sure its your side lights and not your drl's? check if you have a small switch next to the light switch that has a 1 and a 0 on it. 1 being on.
