Default Turning on fog lights without turning on parking lights or low beams

I have a 2004 Audi A6 S line 2.7T. Are there any relays or kits that I can use to turn on my fog lights without having to turn on parking lamps or my low beams?
Thanks in Advance

I remember with my Jetta there was a simple mod where you just put electrical tape over a couple of the pins in the switch to disable the daytime running lights...

Probably quite a bit of a longer shot to do what you're trying to, but the switch is quite similar, I know that much.

I like the Hoen Endurance fog light bulbs, but I would really only want to turn them on separately.

This is from the RossTech page about the B6:
"Fogs w/o low beams only appears to work on 2002 models. For 2003+ models, we know of no way to run the fogs without the low beams, except Canadian, which turns on Daytime Running Lamps (DRL's). We are not sure why there are so many Yes/Yes combinations; there must be some other features controller by this. The state of the Radio and Climate Control lighting is affected by this coding as well."
