that's the euro fog light

you can buy a switch for it, but it doesn't do much and doesn't look great

Does a lot for me especially when there is fog are a heavy rain these are very bright so the people behind you can see you in bad weather.

It's normally the adaptive brake light unless you have rear fogs enabled.

Got it coded to work with braking AND had the dummy rear fog switch enabled for free!

I've found it very useful on long stretch of road when cops or other cars creep up on you.

OP, the adaptive brake light means when you're in "OH SHIT" braking mode (i.e. jamming on the brakes suddenly) it lights up as an additional brake light to the alert the people behind you to brake hard as well since it's brighter with 4 lights instead of 2.

The rear fog idea is just for that...dense fog...alot of mid-2000 audi a4's and a6's have this feature and it does help in dense fog. Otherwise just another light to replace.
