    don't think it is possible - I checked a while back when I enabled mine and there is no option for it in VAGCOM.

    I remember about a month ago I checked this briefly while looking at other things for a mod, I know I ticked something in vagcom but didnt do squat, so another timely vagcom session required I think, but I'm guessing Marc's right anyway, kinda stupid as they're to bright for coming home, fogs were perfect on my S4 B6, just enough light, not invasive to surroundings at all, where as these are like a lighthouse in the close, lol, there's fair few settings I need to play with so I'll check later now laptops charged.

    2 ways, 1 is to wire them in properly with the coming home button or there is a way to enable them with a ground wire momentarily connected/disconnected which Marc did some time back & enabled in vag but this of course turns them on all the time so if you want to disable you either disable in vagcom or from what I remember do the ground wire again, both of which are inconvenient as I find times I like to just turn them of given damn headlights are coming home not the fogs.

    do a forum search for the thread.

    Today I'm the lucky owner of a set of rather expensive adaptive bixenon headlights so my xenons will be for sale very very soon if anyone's after a set.

    If you have bi-xenons which I think you do on yours you only need to make a change with VCDS, you don't have to do the wire to earth thing. I wouldn't bother with the button retrofit. It's not a simple mod and once you've enabled it with VCDS you won't want a button!

    The major isssue with a retrofit is to do it 100% properly it needs to be wired into a light sensor (if you haven't got it already it means a new windscreen!) so they only come on at night.

    I have enabled leaving home only and it's great!

    Thanks again to MarcQ! :respekt:
