Re: First in the World .. to change the Retrocode !!!!

full red would be illegal (in the UK at least) and would surley make it harder to see when reversing at night. Not to mention that no one would know you are in reverse and thats massive potential for a smash that would be your fault. Nice idea though. You could do full white with a red fog lamp bulb, that would be perfectly legal and look a bit better.

yes and given how poor the average persons depth perception and spacial awareness is,i would like to warn them my car is travelling backwards
plus the white light is to hep reversing in the dark

As long as it had a red bulb it would be ok.

Ah, but i said put a red bulb in! Then it would be legal. But i refuse to believe having no reverse light is legal, if its not it should be!

Re: First in the World .. to change the Retrocode !!!!

Is it easy to replace the unit? I just got the car back from the garage and notice the reverse glass, and bulb is missing/broken. No proof that they did it but I've never noticed it before.

i had planned to use the indicators as rear fogs, and use the reverse light and rear fog as indicators and have no reverse light, but found the following....

to have reverse lights fitted to your vehicle is NOT a UK requirement., (my brothers Corsa "yawn" flew through its MOT without them...)
A rear fog however, is. - this should be placed on the rear of the car, no higher that 120cm, too low to use indicators
Reflectors, also ARE required by law on the rear of your vehicle,...

i currently have twin whites on the back, tried using a chrome plated red bulb as the fog but it just lit up pink, so now i have twin reverse lights and no rear fog.....oops

i just change it around come MOT time

hope this helps anyone....
