Call me sad..

Post by toddao » Wed Apr 16, 2008 9:50 am

I'm happy to have finally tracked down not one but two of these and in the right colour. Yes, that's right Mk.1 fog-light switches! I haven't been able to wire up my luvverly Cibie fogs til I found one of these . I didn't want some after-market toggle switch. .. the precious, the precious =P~

Sad? Not at all. Why have the one when you can have two? (Like your BX's)...

I only wanted one but they came as a job-lot! The TRD doesn't have fogs as yet.. If you want extra sad - I'll go and take a picture my original BX dog guard.. hang-on here come the men in white coats :-reindeer

Wow.... Those fogs look seriously cool.

I've always liked yellow tinted lights on French cars, It just seems to look right.

Can't wait to see them on the car...

They're already on the car, but for the last year have only been ornaments..

You're sad.

End of thread.

Although I am probably just as sad, as I want one of them so I can fit some front fogs to the Digit....
this might be a signature

Hi Tod

Do my eyes deceive me or are those fog's much bigger than the UK spec ones they look to be twice the size.

Regards Kermit :) :)

Hello Kermit!

I really don't know how these compare in size to the Uk ones - I bought them in France last year and all I know is I've never seen another set on or off a BX. Cibie must have produced more than one but heaven knows where they all are.
Regards to your wife and hope everything goes well for you

Hi Tod
I would love a set of those for my TZD as they really are at least twice the size of the uk spec ones.
Thanks also for your kind thoughts for my wife
She is coping very well only 15 more visits to the hospital to go.

Regards Kermit :) :)
