Fog lights: Sporting and not

Okay, just noticed on this site (thanks Smally) it has some GP front fog lights listed, there are two models: "Not Sport" and "Sport".

I am guessing this refers to the Sporting models and not, but I never knew the Sporting had different fog lights, so whats the difference?

Thanks

To get to the site goto: http://www.shop4parts.co.uk/index.cf...catalogue.list

Choose sections: Fiat > Punto Grande > Lighting > Fog Lamps

Re: Fog lights: Sporting and not

Cool well we got black cars and so I think it will suit it better

How hard were they to fit? I have had a look at the guide, but can you put the switch on the lights panel (right of the steering wheel) just above where the rear fog light button is?

I did look into this,you would need to carefully dismantle the switch to drill it or fit a surface mounted switch...due to time retsriction (thus customers money) from my point of view it isn't financially viable but might be from yours.

The wiring is not there for front fogs at the switch incase your wondering.

Oh I see. What would happen if I went to a dealer and asked them to fit it, would they put the switch there?

Thanks.

I think they would, if you wanted to fit them to the switch pannel it would have to be custom bodged.

Re: Fog lights: Sporting and not

IIRC you cant use that blank (somewhere in t-s guide mentions it) its one of those soft touch non-latching buttons which is linked into the cars body computer that controls the rear fog light as well as the multifunction display...

would be more hastle than its worth building some form of Thyristor based circuit to make it work...

what i did was mount a switch near the handbrake




heres my wiring diagram if its any use for you
