Headlight switch for north americian treg

Anyone know where to get a euro spec headlight switch for a 2010 treg. The current one I have is # 7L6 941 431 AA. It only has off, on, front fogs only while headlights are on. I have added aftermarket hids and turned of the drl. I'm looking for an option to do off, parking lights only, parking with fogs, main lights on and main lights with front fogs. I have ordered various switches and none of them seem to work. I have no coming home, leaving home or auto functions on the original switch. I've tried the local dealers here and they don't have any info.

Try Auburn VW, 1stvwparts, tynan... or search for euroswitch in the mods forum

I did try 1st and the mods here. Everything is for tregs with auto lights. Something that we didnt get here for the 2010 on the comfortline. You would have to get the highline which was an additional $12,000 above the $67,700 I already spent for mine.
I tried ecstuning as they listed one. After $25 shipping and $43 brokerage plus the $85 for the switch, it's also the wrong one. They did offer me an in store credit.
I'll try the Vw dealer you listed.
Thanks

The "A" is replaced by a "tunnel" but I would assume the functionality is the same. No?

Tunnel?

Well the one I'm holding in my hand(still not installed ) is the one with the letter A, but where it gets confusing is that there is a dude on this board that has two AA after the 431, and he claims that he can't get his to work, so I just don't know anymore.

It is purported that there are like 13(okay maybe 7-8?) variations of this switch.

Perhaps Spockcat knows the secret in a decipherable one liner?

Yes if you look at the switch, it starts with 0 (ZERO) meaning OFF, then there is either the letter A (for Auto on/off) OR a symbol denoting a TUNNEL (meaning lights will come on AUTOMATICALLY when you enter a tunnel or dark area.

I'll have to go look at mine. But it's time to feed the kids now

Oh, ok, I see now what you meant. Sorry if I'm not the brightest star in the sky. I was talking about the part#'s.
Yes, my Euro switch has the light in tunnel symbol, as does the one that is for sale in the link I provided in post#4. Curious what the one the OP has, has?

The switch I have has no "A" (automatic) for the North American cars or the tunnel (euro). All I have is "O" off and on, a light symbol.
The AA was in the part number. So far I'm still out of luck but still searching. Thanks for all the input though, when I do find something I'll let everyone know

That is the standard switch not a Euro-switch and won't work for what you want.
