I think you have that backwards?  The fronts are seperate, the "rear"
activates both.  This is the way most(all?) fog switches I've seen in euro
cars work; think about it...for light fog, you'd only want additional
front lighting.  For heavy fog, you'd want both, the rear for safety.

  Of course, Audi is just the sort of company to -not- do what makes
sense("hey, let's confuse the hell out of those stupid Americans
and...")  Thank god, because that's better than the Jaguar(pardon, I meant
Jag-ie-u-AR) engineers, who said "Let's -piss off- those stupid 
Americans"  Anyone that's ever been behind a Jaguar(I mean...oh,
nevermind) with the rear fogs on knows exactly what I mean...

There is a rocker switch that I received accidentally that was a toggle,
front did fronts, back did both rear+fronts.  I no longer have the
switch(returned it the next day to the dealer for the correct part; at the
time, I had a 5kCST.)

PS:anyone else giggle during Jagie-u-AR commercials?  Maybe it's some sort
of secret handshake; say the name "properly" without giggling and then
they let you test drive one, otherwise, Jeeves drop-kicks you out the
