Sometimes I see people with their rear fog during a sunny day. Think it's super funny. Since it's only 1 side for the Audi's.

You can modify the stock switch or get the euro switch. Plug it in and code it, done.
Interesting... could have done with it Tuesday as drove to NY! Was foggy in central Jersey up!

Agreed... it does look odd. Pretty sure half of them don't even realise!

Yep! I'm a fan though, they really make a huge difference. (while in fog of course)

Yea loved using it in my S4. Thankfully it's usually not that foggy near where I am in San Francisco.

Ignore Run #2, it was in eco mode I think.

Info:
-N20 8AT xDrive. 37k miles.
-Dinan P1 Power Package (Stage 3 Dinantronics, Dual core IC, axle back)
-Mustang AWD 500 dyno (linked) These typically read a good bit lower than DynoJet.
-22% correction. Both Dinan and the Dyno operator suggested 22%. I'm sure this % can be debated.

Dinan claims: 324hp 331tq (flywheel)

Baseline: (Bypass mode/stock tune, Dinan dual core IC, axle back)
219whp
255wtq

Dinan P1: (Stage 3 Dinantronics, dual core IC, axle back)
263whp
298wtq

Peak Gains:
44whp
43wtq

Once the weather breaks I will run it down the 1/4 and try to get some mid 13s. I'm around stock 340i power levels which is perfect for my daily!

awesome!
Are you still thinking about switching your exhaust for something different?
Would be curious if you see any gains if you were to say, switch to AWE exhaust with their mid-pipe. Maybe an intake too!

Thanks! I found the euro switch on eBAY $55 shipped. It arrived in like new condition and the seller had a lot of positive feedback. ECS was $150+ ship and it was back ordered for 4+ weeks.

Yea, about 3 years ago I got it into the high 13.5-mid 13.6 range with just the Dinan tune and IC. Don't recall trap speed but it was pretty weak, as expected.

Old girl has almost 90k miles now so I don't beat on it anymore. Thankfully, I had the timing chain guides done under warranty.
