    Its the same on both my Audi's and my dads audi. They have one rear foglight and the other is a blank. The 2 coloured bits are just to look symmetrical

    i think its a german or VAG thing as all the VAG cars I ever had have only had 1 foglight and i'm on my sixth now.
    I suppose that most of the time the foglights are turned off and so the two lens sections look the same.
