    I'm guessing it will be a function on the newer central electronics module & convenience module so I'm sure it wont be a simple mod.

    !!!!!! So every time you turn the steering wheel the fog lights come on ????

    Why on earth would anyone want to do that ?

    only the one comes on so it turns on the way your going like the merc's do so if your turning right the right one comes on and vice versa

    Fortunately I have never actually seen this pathetic innovation.

    Whoever decided to make it available needs their head looking at, as does anyone who wants it in my opinion !

    Can somebody please tell me what possible use it could be ?

    Must be so confusing for other road users too.
    If I had someone driving behind me on a twisty road at night and in my rear view mirror I kept seeing their left and right fog lights flashing randomly, I'd think I was being tailed by a UFO, panic, and crash into a tree.

    The only use i can think for it, is so that us poor soles who have to try and guess where a Mercedes is going next have some sort of clue when they don't use their indicators

    I thought it was only to illuminate where your going when turning into a side road.

    Seriously - I have never noticed it - and come to think of it I would be interested to hear in what circumstances another driver can actually notice it. Generally speaking, if I see a car with one foglight on I assume the other bulb has blown !

    Presumably they only work at night ? I thought it was actually illegal to drive with an odd number of lights showing on the front of a vehicle ? Obviously bulbs blow and, whilst technically breaking the law, I'm sure the cops generally turn a blind eye.

    However a car with a specific feature to turn on one light at the front (at night?) is surely a different kettle of fish ?

    they are suposed to light the way as merc say so if your going round a corner they light the edge of the road etc... dont know on the legality of them but they are on brand new cars so they have to be legal otherwise they would be aloud to fit them on new cars

    I can't see the point when you have two perfectly good headlights. It's bad enough that people drive around with foglights on when it's not foggy or when there's just a little bit of mist.

    I don't see peoples issue with it, its a good idea, my girlfriends brand new kia pro Ceed does it, they come on when cornering and fade out when the wheel is straight. Why would you not want to see the road better when cornering especially with the amount of potholes about!
