anyone else notice that their foglights act as a secondary turn signal - one that you don't control?

i noticed the other day when my gf was driving behind me in the TDi. when she makes a right turn, even if she doesn't signal, the right foglight will turn on.

seems to be tied into the steering wheel position since even at a rest the right/left foglight will turn on.

can we turn this "feature" off?

I don't have one but this is a known feature on the 2010 Golf. Does the owner's manual say anything about it?

Rather than a signal, it's to help illumuniate the area you're turning into. I actually like it -- comes in handy parking along curbs on dark streets and turning onto streets that may have potholes after our rough winter. I don't think there's a setting you can change directly, but I'm guessing there's a VAG code responsible for it.
