I love this mod and it was easy to do. Must have taken me about 5 minutes with most of that spent taking out and reattaching the Torx screws.

In terms of operation for me front and rear fog lights can be turned on and off independently as long as the front headlights are on/auto. It's pretty good illuminations and will help in those low visibility drives in heavy snow.

I did find out those inner brake lamps/rear fog lights are H21W bulbs--not P21w as the manual implies. I had planned on replacing those lamps with LED's as well, but there is no replacement for those at this time, so they will stay as is for now.

Very happy with this easy mod and thanks to all for the info here.

Now, what to do with the old light switch? I don't think it will be that valuable until many more years pass.
