I dont think we will ever see rear fog lights in America, Its illegal. Its strictly for Euro/spec cars along with headlight washers ,I understand.

Rear fogs come on many US DOT approved cars, Audi, Volvo, and Saab come to mind. Headlight washers are standard on many US made cars including Caddy, Buick, as well as our own 5 series, 3 series, 1 series, 7 series, X3, and X5.

Oh Yes I stand corrected thanks.Its a state by state dot regulations. I know i have not seen any in Calif. Funny most Internet posts have been erased on the subject of legality and where not legal. I did find it a requirement in Europe and legal in Canada and some US states.
