    Hi mate!

    In Europe the inner are Fog Lamps! The outer are the brake lights! I believe there's an option to switch them in VCDS. I'm sure someone else will be able to point you to the correct page.

    This is all in the Central Electronics Module\Coding\Long Coding Helper! All references to the Rear lights are highlighted in Red & the selections are my settings:

    There are also some "back up setting" which I didn't include. Hope this helps, Good Luck

    I think it is no possible in mi car (Pre facelift)

    The only way i think it works is use the same wire that use the outer taillight, it is a little crazy :D
