exactly, alot of audi owners run around with them on, they are REAL annoying and distracting when there isnt fog; if you wire them up as rear fogs, please only use them when appropriate.TGD said:The fog lights are so bright that they annoy the driver behind. It may dangerous to have them when there is no fog around, because they outshine the brake lights.
Ditto that! It's so rude and without any purpose.RichP said:

If they don't make the right one light up (at all?) then why do they sell a right and left side? As I recall driving on the bahn, there are cars with both left and right rear fog lampsmc said:and if you're going to do it, do it right. True rear fog lights are built into the left taillight cluster only, not both. European automakers do that on purpose. The cars you see with them on don't have one blown out on the right side b/c there isn't one on the right side.
Let us know it turns out. OEM rear fogs would be sweet.GeoMystic said:I think you need to put them on a switch. THey are extremely annoying to the following driver when there is no fog around.
No offense but this kind of misuse of th rear fog is what keeps the feature out of US models. Me and a few fanatics on the board have been trying to get BMW to make a retrofit kit which puts ONE rear fog on a switch built-in to the LCM. The way it is featured in "euro" versions of the E46. So that we can actually use it when necessary during a fog.
If people keep "hardwiring" two rear fogs to their cars, it will just reinforce BMW's reasoning behind not bring this feature in. I say put it on a switch in one taillight and I would give you credit, otherwise :thumbdwn:
