    Before anyone says it's illegal to yours fogs etc, i know this but hear me out before slagging commences.

    I have noticed a few new Skoda's etc with the fogs used as DRL and the new polo also.

    The light output has been greatly reduced obviously so it's not a pain in the arse for oncoming motorists.

    Am i right in thinking the brightness is reduced by 75% down to 25% light output when using the fogs as DRLs?

    Next question is, can this be done on a 2006 Sline SB? I'm West Yorkshire (bradford area).

    Thanks

    Did you manage to find out if this could be enabled on a 56 plate A3?

    Cheers Rhyso.

    I did and it can be done; I enabled it on AudiCruiser's A3 on Saturday. What you have to look out for is that the extended menu's for the DIS cannot be enabled meaning you need to use VCDS (VAGCOM) to disable them

    i wonder if it can be done with mine hmmm as ive got the main headlights as my drl's now but when we were coding it , it would only do the scandinavian setting not the north american setting so the front and rear lights are on not just the fronts any ideas ????
