Is that red fog light that is mounted on the bumper?

Thanks for the information, ingo.

In our market some of the BMW and Audi I have seen have the functioning red fog lights. Most of them have blank red lens....

On the trivia note, my car, Chevrolet Aveo have a blank white lens on my headlight assembly that is being reserved for some country that requires white light.

This extra foglamp was mandatory in Belgium in the 70ies. In Germany it was an optional extra, mainly made by Hella or Bosch. Sometimes in the 80ies(?), in Germany every car has to have a back foglamp, too, so the times were come, where they were integrated in the regular back lamps.


P.S. The white back lamp is for the rear gear. For many years, it wasn't mandatory in Germany (in other countries probably, too), so the most smaller cars or cars with the lowest trim level, had no white reverse-gear-lamp. You could buy them as an aftersales-market-extra,too. Sometimes you'll find NOS-boxes with these lamp-kits on classic-car-markets.

In europe...

EEC regulation for rear fog lamps was from June 1977.
77/538/EEC: Council Directive of 28 June 1977 ... relating to rear fog lamps for motor vehicles and their trailers.

For reversing (back-up) lights I'm not certain, but I believe they are still not mandatory according to EEC regulations. The manufacturer does not have to fit them but when they do they must be in a certain position, only light when in reverse gear and have a maximum light intensity.

German (and other) makes on lower cost cars mainly have one rear fog lamp (driver's side) and one white reversing light (passenger's side). UK practice initially was to fit the rear fog lamp in pairs. Vauxhall insisted for example that Astras had them fitted in the rear bumpers when Opels had a single lamp in the rear light unit.
