^I've seen numerous Benz's, Audis, Jaguars, Rovers, and Volvos with that annoying bright light behind them. Many of them don't even know they have it on, or how annoying it is to drivers behind in non-foggy conditions.

Here's the mod with brake pedal activation with lightbars:

Here's the mod with brake pedal activation and no lightbars just circles (lightbars on because headlights are on):

These mods are just moving the brake lights from one place to another.

To have rear fogs (inner circle) independent of the brakes with euro switch it would need to be activated via coding on US spec E60's.
On the US spec E90's it's just a matter of replacing the switch with the euro one.
