The tailgate spot below the backup lights WOULD BE where we US market types would get rear fogs, if they were installed on our cars. That is the blank you see on the hatch. Other than that, you have all the lights you are supposed to have.

If you buy the hatch repair wiring harness, it is wired for the rear fogs, but then you also need a 3 position Euro fog light switch, and (I think) a different LKM.

I have 5 bulbs on each side:
1 for turn indicator
1 for "regular" rear light
1 for brake light
1 for rear fog light
1 for backup light


Does anyone know how many bulbs light up in the rear of a touring? Is it just two parking lights and 2 separate brake lights. It looks like there is a slot for additional bulbs in the light housing of the tailgate, but the holes are covered over. Am I missing something here?

Thanks, that spare slot must be where the rear fog light bulb goes. Too bad, with all that lens its a shame there wasn't more light for the rear of these things.
