Anyone notice the left foglight come on when turning steering left and right one when turning right? I have the adaptive lighting xenons, but didnt think this is normal for fog lights to come on this way. Anyone care to chime in on this?

Yes, I've lost count of the amount of times I've been stopped by people telling me a fog light is not working. The additional light is a good idea mind you and you certainly notice the difference when driving in dark areas.

The Fog Lamps are working as designed. With Xenons and Adaptive Lighting they function as both Fog Lamps and Turning Lamps. You missed one - both lamps come on when you are reversing.
