Nice...I did the same mod but with the switch for the front and rear fogs. I didn't know the switch for "rear fogs only" was available.

I'm worse than you...I have 1600 miles in 4+ months.

Actually, I took the same one you bought and mated the parts with the one in the car to make a rear fog only switch. It took only 10 minutes to disassemble and reassemble them.

I dont really consider this a mod as you are just allowing yourself to turn on a light that is already there

Jinxter was the first one to research this, but here's my DIY post (#20): http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...ight=rear+fogs.

JuniorDee, any tips on switching the old button cap with one of the new ones? I couldn't figure out how they cam off.

GregW, you and Jinxter were the inspiration for this. I will take some picks tonight and post them up on button removal.

The joy of seeing their face light up bright red is truly one you have to experience... Its even better when you start flashing it haha...

Just remember that those bulbs are also you adaptive brake lights. So when you have them on you obviously wont have that feature...

FYI i didn't want to pay for another light module so I took the internal piece from the inside of a buddies old light module and simply shaved the tabs off the button covers that come on our light modules... works great, you end up with a stealthy black button to turn on the rear fogs.
