Fog Light Illumination On Cornering

Post by need4speed » Wed Jan 15, 2020 11:09 pm

As title.

Can the option be switched off via car settings? I’m not a fan.

Possibly some where in lighting menu, it's called cornering lighting and it's suppose to help light up the kerb when you're taking a corner. Personally I'm a fan.

Fed up with people saying a foglight is out.

I’ve had cars where the main beam does the same thing which I don’t mind.

I'm presuming it's fog light cornering with halogen headlights. The cornering light is in the LED headlight assembly and I find it very useful when maneuvering in poorly lit areas. I do think approaching vehicles from a junction look odd with one fog light slowly dimming.

Just out of interest as well, when reversing with headlights on you’ll also notice that both cornering lights are illuminated at the same time.

There is an option to code “foglights as cornering lights” in Carista, so maybe if you have halogens it would work in reverse and code them out. Worth a try for the sake of £10.99 (or whatever it is on Amazon at the moment)

I love the integrated LED cornering lights! Great addition to already great headlights 🙌🏻

I think the OP has halogen headlights hence it uses the fog lights as cornering lights unlike the LED headlights which use an additional LED in the headlight unit itself and not the fog lights.

I've got the halogens and the cornering light is great
I've actually started to notice it more and more on other vehicles too, not just VW.
Personally I can't understand what there is to dislike
