I seem to recall my '90 V8 had a single switch that turned on both
the front lights and the one in the red tail lenses.  I never checked
what the fog on/off to high beams relation was; but in my '79 911 that
was sold new in Germany links the fog power to the running lights and
disables them when the high beams are on.  It's up to the driver to
choose if he wants the low beams on while the fogs are on.

Now as to the shiny new (welll....) 200q20v I've now had a couple of
weeks, the front fogs are mounted on cheesy sheet-metal brackets with
rusty bolts that don't look like factory stuff.  I doubt the setup it
has right now is a good reference.
