Would say they the same, you have to fit your own rear foglight separate in uk if car dont have one to pass mot dont ya?????? saying this cause my jap import dont have a fog light on the lights and dont need one to pass the nct (mot) here in Ireland, but somebody will give you a 100% answer...................

If ya use import lights(or sti red/clears)just change the right hand side reverse light into"fog light of sorts" by either changing wire from foglight or(cant remember if this is def possible bin a while) just put the bulb holder from the foglight into the reverse light hole-will need a 21w red silvatec bulb so it dont look red in ya reverse light when off an spoil the look-arent particularly fog light bright but pass mot and are brighter than ya sidelights.

Re: classic' shape rear lights!!

Hi guys, new to site. I have this same prob, 94 import with sti rear clusters, obviously no fog light on rear. I dont really want to buy one of those screw on jobs for the bottom of the bumper. What do i need to do about changing the right hand side reverse light bulb to make it a fog light? Im guessing buy a red bulb (21w) as mentioned above, are these easy to get hold of? Do i need to wire in another switch on the dash or can i wire it into the witch for the front fogs? I heard it has to light up? Not sure if this is on the switch or dash? Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks Gareth
