My car has fog lights and the rear red triangle lights up nicely when I turn it on.

I'm in Beirut , Lebanon so it might be Middle Eastern? or European version here.

Anyone have the fog lights and know if it would work on our US cars too? I sure hope it's not just a plastic placeholder!
There's a vendor on here actually selling a Rear Fog Light/ 3rd Brake light kit. He has 3 different kits actually. I'm looking at getting it the very near future.

If you record video of LED lights (for example an Audi LED DRL or Lexus LED's or Merc LED DRL's and you move the camera around a bit, during playback the lights will look like they are flashing.
does that trick work on our brake lights since they are also LED's?

Rear fogs are aimed directly at driver eye-level so as to increase visibility in foggy conditions (as you would expect, given their name).

Wiring up a light that was intended to be used as a rear fog light as a brake light is a super d-bag thing to do. I see cars all the time with the rear fogs wired up as brake lights and they are bright, obnoxious, and make you look like a tool driving around. But hey, do whatever you want to your cars
I think most people in this thread are talking about wiring it up as a fog.

Totally agree with you in terms of the LED, but I have seen F1 cars in the flesh and the rear lights do flash. They flash because it's proven the human eye reacts faster to a flashing light verses a solid one and it's required at the speeds they are doing.
