When you brake normally, the back lights go on as normal; when you brake in an emergency, they blink several times per second to warn the cars behind.

Is that the normal setting or do you have to program it?

You might have to buy a BMW, Mercedes-Benz or Volvo. I haven't heard of any Audi models that have them.

Actually, I believe you can add the emergency braking behavior with the VCDS Vag-Com:

Enable Adaptive brake lights
[46 - Comfort System] [Coding - 07] -> Long Coding Helper -> Byte 8
Bit 0 Emergency Brake Flashing via Turn Lights active - check box
Bit 1 Emergency Brake Flashing via Brake Lights active - check box

Click the image to open in full size.

I haven't tried either of the options but apparently others have had success.

Thank for the good info. I usually tap the brake pedal several times when I predict trouble ahead on the highway. I did it yesterday when traveling near the Rochester NY airport that is known for white outs from blowing snow and saw many brake lights ahead. A RIT student lost her life in a multi-car accident in the same area a few winters ago.

Correct. Works as advertised, in 'panic stop' situations.

it only activates if you do a hard braking so called emergency braking. its a neat feature that catches drivers eyes on the road.

Does anyone know what triggers it? Is it -'ve G or brake pedal pressure or?

I enabled it but I have not seen it work, do I really have to stomp on the brakes?
I noticed a Smart car with them and they flashed Every time he braked even if it was a slight slowing.
