    How many fogs do facelifts have at the rear ?

    Just upgraded my rear clusters and realised that I only had 1 fog on mine.

    I wonder how difficult it would be to wire in the other fog light? I'm sick of travelling behind fools who forget to switch them off / use them when not required and an opportunity to overtake and then giving them a taste of their own medicine would be handy...

    Oh, really? Good to know! I was fretting about how to change what I presumed was a blown bulb in my passenger side cluster as I only have one fog light, but wondered why there was no warning symbol!

    From what I can see the fitment is there for the bulb in the holder and there is just a blanking plate in the cluster itself.

    Can't see it being hard to put one in.

    I think you do need to run a wire to the holder.

    I was told the reason why cars only have 1 fog is to avoid people mistaking them for brake lights or to make brake lights easier to see when the fogs are on. That's less of a problem now cars have a high-level brake light.
