Default All Weather Lights

Hi All,

I read in the manual about the "all weather lights." I'm still not certain what they do. Is this Audi's fancy term for fog lamps? I can't even tell what's different when I press the button.

Thanks.

aka Rear Fog Lights. They are usually in the rear bumper but since I don't have my Q7 yet I cannot confirm that US models have them.

All US Audis have rear fog lights. However, he is talking about the all weather lights which are up front and not on all Audis.

They basically just shine a bit more light out to the sides of the vehicle. Not a huge difference IMO.

They also cut on when making a turn instead of having headlights that swivel. I personally wish they had headlights that swivel more as I live in the country but in city driving they seem to work alright.

They're pretty useful for dark intersections imo, they illuminate pedestrians/obstacles way sooner than swivel headlights because of the more extreme angle.

There is also a button for extra illumination in the front headlight area mostly affecting side lighting.

That would be the all weather light.
