Default Rear Fog Lights

I am quite surprised that Audi didnít include rear fog lights for USA models. Do the EU cars have them?

Based on this picture and the one in the US owner's manual, looks like fogs are not an option in the US.

Most likely reason is the propensity for litigation in the US. There are many suits re: the rear fog lights. Too bad as I really like them on my Beemers.

Thanks for the article - interesting reading...but "many suits re: the rear fog lights" - what's the source of that statement?

I have come to hate rear fog lights because of the idiots who keep them on all the time. In clear conditions they're really annoying.
