    it will if you get the correct one for the lighting fitted to your car eg, xenons, front & rear fogs etc. There are people on forum already done it.

    I've done & fits fine, just get right one for your lights etc as K mentioned, but I got something extra on mine cause of my drl addition on my headlights, so if you plan to add things like coming home, drl's, auto light sensor for headlights etc then buy the switch for these functions so later can wire in fully.

    Yeah DRL has an on/off dial & probably with internal illumination dial aswell, possibly with a button for coming home & then auto for the obvious, got an image?

    Coming/leaving home can be enabled via vagcom tbh but wouldnt be switchable without the button, so can be done anyway with also the help of an earth wire & maybe DIS features enabled depending on age of car or you can do properly with the switch & wiring.

    I now sell genuine vagcom if anyone is interested.

    They are around £57 from audi by the way - a lot money for a switch with a bit of aluminium trim on it but its oh so tempting!!
