The idea of only one rear fog is that so in bad viz, you can still easily see the brake lights of the vehicle ahead. I don't understand the "mistaking it for a motorbike" bit - does it make a difference what vehicle is in front of you?!!Most cars usually / used to have it , and the r171 even comes with the bulb in place , not sure if it's a Mercedes thing or new european rules or what .
Annoying , shouldn't be if only used when there's fog , I for one if I was behind just one rear fog light , would tend to mistake it for a motor bike ....
Very god point about the stone chip issue. I religiously give cars ahead a lot of room and after over 5 years of operation I have only 1 very small (1mm) stone chip. Also helps me stay accident free!Point taken Woolly! :hail:
Perhaps that's why Mabel's suffering so many stone chips!
Sorry Pete ... didn't mean to hijack your thread.
