Can't help sorry, but back in early 2000's I had Hid dip and fogs long before most people had Hid at all, oh and just for fun, I had a CD player in the car before most had one in their house! soooooo long ago sounded amazing

Re: fog light 500 sport vs 500 Abarth

I hope you don't use your fog lights when it's not reduced visibility. Sorry to be a pain about this.

A mate of mine was fined 60 for having his fog lights on.

Highway Code:

Rule 236
You MUST NOT use front or rear fog lights unless visibility is seriously reduced (see Rule 226) as they dazzle other road users and can obscure your brake lights. You MUST switch them off when visibility improves.
Rule 226:

Rule 226
You MUST use headlights when visibility is seriously reduced, generally when you cannot see for more than 100 metres (328 feet). You may also use front or rear fog lights but you MUST switch them off when visibility improves (see Rule 236).
I can't remember the last time I needed fog lights. Maybe a couple of winters ago.

Regards,
Mick.
Thanks resigningyou thanked for this post
