Good question. I've yet to see them. Maybe one of the European suppliers can ship them. With the dollar falling they may be expensive. Do the Canadian Foresters have them? Richard

Exclamation If you do get one...

If you do find one, just be sure you're not one of those idiots driving around with it on in clear weather. Not fun to follow those cars at night with the fog light on. Of course, the owners almost always don't know about the rear fog light and they're also clueless enough to think fog lights are for everyday driving. I swear I'm the only person around here who DOESN'T drive around at night with my fog lights on all the time.

Sorry to digress, I just had to point that out.

Agreed When I get a round tuit, I want to wire my backup lights (maybe with 50-watt halogen bulbs) to a momentary-on pushbutton so I can "communicate" with jerks following me with either foglights on or high-beams on...

The rear fog should be on the side the drivers wheel is, I think that's the standard way they set them up. I put one on my RS:

http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/sho...=&threadid=433

I didn't use it a lot, only in very dense fog or a snow squal, in light fog it can be very annoying to the person behind you. I don't think it's a good idea to have it linked to the front fogs unless you can turn it on and off independantly.

IMHO, there is nothing worse than being behind a nice Jag on a clear night and the pinhead has his rear fog lamp on blinding you. Completely oblivious of the fact. They don't deserve such a fine vehicle if they can't use it properly

It's bad enough you see a lot of cars w/ fogs on 24/7

Gaaa don't get me started


FWIW: Some back up light info:

I don't see those 35 watt Narva backup bulbs listed on Daniel's website. How much did they cost?

Did you do an A/B comparison by putting a Narva in one side only with the stock bulb on the other side, to help see the actual difference?

How do you think the brightness of the 35 watt Narva bulbs compares with the 50 watt halogens sold in auto parts stores?

For the short periods that backup lights are illuminated, do you think the 50 watters are really likely to melt the lenses?

The 50W bulbs I've gotten at autozone and what not have not lasted very long. You are right they most likely won't melt things if you only use them for a limited time. However, the quality is pretty bad. I've used a few sets of the 50W ones and the bulb fogs on the inside (looks like smoke on the glass) after a few months. So far the 35W ones have held up pretty good.

I did look at the brightness difference and it's noticeable but not really photographable if that's a word.

They aren't listed on his site (a lot of stuff isn't) but you can call and ask for stuff. That's what I end up doing.

I can't remember I got about 8-10 bulbs at the same time.
