Question Fog/Driving Lights T-series

Now i know last time i was in a BA xr that the driver has control of the fog/driving lights by way of a switch on the dash. I was out in the t-series the other night and was searching for the button to turn on the driving lights and discovered that they will only operate when the high beam is selected.

I can think of instances when you might want to use these lights say out in the country area's, to light up the front and sides of the road in poorly lit area's without having to keep flicking the high beam on and off posibly blinding people for an instance. I don't know if these lights are more powerfull than the one's on the BA???

I have to say the lights on this car are the best i have experenced on any car i have driven.

Just an annoying thing rather than a problem. Only other disappointment so far is the seats. Not much lateral support compared to my EL seats.

Agree Noddy

Thats why most people have had switches instaled to control those fog lights!

Re: Fog/Driving Lights T-series

Yes Noddy the lights are different, if you have a look on the xrs thay have a cover over the globe and on the Ts thay dont the Ts are much brighter, I had an elecy mate of mine wire them up so I could run them seperately and they were just to bright !!!! Everyone was getting the sh#$% with me so I dont use them now only with the highbeam as they were entended

Re: Fog/Driving Lights T-series

I would agree, the lights are way too bright to use other than with High Beam, got to agree with Noddy, great lights, can see for miles,so as to say, only problem is that they seem to attract more kangaroos near the road

Re: Fog/Driving Lights T-series

is it that the BA lights are wide range short distance, and the T spotties are just that, - long distance spotlights?

Spot on mate
T series are long distance spotties, where as the BAs are more short / wide

Re: Fog/Driving Lights T-series

AU T series 1 and 2 and the BA have FOG lights. The AU 3 T series have DRIVING lights. I would prefer both If I had one of these cars.
