Just had my euro headlight switch installed and rear fog light enabled. As soon as I get my TPMS sorted out I'll post a couple of pics :)

Most people do only the driver's side. That way the warning is obvious rather than it looking like your brake lights are stuck on.

Not plug and play. The switch itself is easy; however you have to remove a fair amount of rear trim and run a wire from a module on the right rear. My *good* private mechanic put about 4 hours into it. I'll email you the write up.

You also have to recode the module so that it knows the bulb should be enabled. I don't know the coding. My mechanic figured it out separately, as it wasn't in the write up I had.

You should probably have your guy do it...not Jack Daniels...dealer pricing for this woudl be astronomical. :)

My other car stock runs both for the rear fog. So I'm going to mirror it and do the same here. Considering it's only ran during heavy fog and being on the beach here is either super heavy or non at all, to me it's worth it.

Anyone have a part number, or a LED alternative, for the bulb used in the rear fog? Every one I've used has melted the red insert they fit into.
