Not when I flash, but when I flip to high. I havent fixed the "low always on"

Maybe the flash is different on US spec cars? On Euro spec cars only the high
flash, maybe yours really flash both high and low? And the Coupe you saw didnt?

Could you please tell me what diode I should get, and how to hook it up? It is
not the proper way to do it, as Audi made some different connections and a
different light switch. Unfortenately the switch on the RS2 and A6/S6 dont fit
my car, as it seems to be the right way to make it work.

Not when flashing, but when flipping to high (switch pushed forward).
