One of my pet hates.

On my little trip to Asda this evening, I spotted at least 5, and there is absolute no sign of fog what so ever!

Come on admit it, those of you that do it!!

Good answer!!

A friend of mine does it in his focus RS, ALL the time. I continually ridicule him for it, he claims it exaggerates his presence in other driver's rear view mirrors.
Really can't understand why people do it tho.

not entirely true, they are actually called driving lights now, not fog lights and the correct application for driving lights is when visibility is deemed poor by yourself, but during the day and not in fog you'd not really be able to make a case... but I agree, fog lights in fine conditions = chav scum

only if visability is reduced to within 100metres.

you can use your fogs if for some other reason- ie smoke, heavy rain spray etc if visability is reduced to within 100metres

at the end of the day fog lights are a part of my
standard car as she left the factory .
IT IS STANDARD EQUIPMENT !!!


on the other hand some of you kids here are ripping them
out to save weight , use as cold air feed etc .
so that you can get a better acceleration when you
are racing a boy racer on a public road ???

and i am the chav for using my standard
equipment on my car daytime ?? :lol:

some of you kids really need some
serious growing up to be done imo .

Speaking of kids and growing up can you tell me why you need them on in the daytime other than to attract attention to yourself? I don't care one way or the other, I just associate it with attention seeking kids/chavs, as it's usually the same thing in regards to this... you don't have a bangin' stereo as well by any chance do you? lol

spare wheel..never used in my ownership.

suit carrier..never used in my ownership.


height adj headlights...never used em


using the fogs/driving lights wen theres no need...now thats jus childishly chav.

21-02-2007, 15:57
Its not standard equipment to have em wired up to the ignition is it??

Just one of my pet hates, I very rarely use my fogs. Except my rear for reversing in the dark.

you should have allready figured out

so you must class yourself as an "enthusiast"

Guys come on dont get in a tuffle over it.

I only started this thread as, being a driver it is one of my pet hates that people drive around with their fog lights in the day, let alone when not needed at night. My car is low, and I am blinded by most headlights so people driving around with fog lights on as well when not necessary only adds to it even worse.

Its only a light hearted thread, no need to go all political about it!

ok fine if they increase your visability, but around town and car parks?

although saying that i have xenons so could be called a chav for those :S

Daz.
21-02-2007, 22:22
I wish mine worked so I could even remember what they looked like!

I must admit I used to flash people with the fogs to let them go - they always seemed to notice more that I was offering than with standard lights..

Hopefully they'll be all fixed ready tomorrow :twisted:

class myself as an idiot mate for spending all this money on cars, I'm not particularly enthusiastic about them though as much... more important things, but on the whole it's just my opinion that fog lights during daytime and obnoxiously loud music is chavvy and ASBO's should be given out immediately.

Following a car with rear fogs on when it is clear weather is horrible. I never found front fogs to be a problem though. The are only there to get under the fog and light the way, rather than lighting up the fog obscurring your view more, so don't need to be stupidly bright.

Anyway, on my old car they were called "driving lights" by Nissan so I can have them on whenever I want hehe.

Seriously, I don't use them unless needed, cos I hate it when people have rears on and flash them. or stick mine on and off etc.
