Hella Euro driving lights (how to connect)

I noticed a small bulb just underneath the main bulb in my Hella Euros. Is this the high beam, or is it a driving light ready to be hooked up?

If it is the driving light, has anyone wired theirs so that it turns on automatically with ignition?

John, does your gray market Hella's have these lights?

Thanks for any input!

I believe those are what they call City Lights. Basically, they should perform the function of your parking lights, but instead of the turnsignal bulb being activated, it's that bulb.

I didn't bother connecting the city lights. It didn't seem worth the effort. I would rather put the time toward adding heavier guage wire and relays to the system to maximize output from the stock wattage Philips Vision +50 bulbs.
