They're fog lights. use them to help you see the edge of the road...........in FOG :thumbsup:

If it's not foggy, don't fkn use them.
That's like saying, there is a speed limit so stick to the speed limit and don't speed.
Are you saying you don't speed :tilt:

They're not "look at me" lights...
If you want better visibility, use your dip beam headlamps...
Some people like the look of their cars at night with the fog lights on. You may not like it, others do. It's personal opinion.

In many cases, you can't even put your front fogs on until the rear fog is on.... eg UK cars (check your 328 pp).

Although, here in Oz, it's not legislated to even have rear fog lamps.  :confused:
Not in the European cars I've been in. You put the fog ones on first, back ones on 2nd.

If and when I speed, it does not distract other drivers, like fog lights do.

No, it's the law. Fog lights on during clear visibility, is illegal. Not opinion.

Well, I've hardly used fog lights since 2000, 'cos it's not foggy here and I don't own a car with rear fog lights (which are infinitely more useful than fronts, as a safety measure).  :tilt:

But in all the cars I ever tried before then, and in the UK cars I still see here, and in the few Aussie cars I've seen that have both, it's rear first, then front. or maybe independant. But never seen front first THEN rear are enabled...

I'm willing to listen to fact though.... if you have some :scratchchin:

My Chrysler Voyager has front first, then rear...

You're still wrong about the use of them though :tilt:

I personally rarely see fog, maybe 3 times a year that I need to sue my foggies (factory fit).

I however do a LOT of country driving of long distances and use them as markers rather than blowing my friggen headlight globes so I cant use them at night...
Looks like thats gonna stuff me up..  Oh well back to using nothing I guess. Safety first :)

My work Taxis has the head lights hard wired on(safety policy :rolleyes:) and the globes don't blow very often at all. I don't think I have had to replace any in the last 2 years(about 60k kms).
