What is the intended purpose of the white and red lights in the rear bumper?

The red one is the fog lens that illuminates with your fogs or some countries require them on at night regardless of weather. The white one is your back up light. It illuminates really well to allow you to see while backing. I should have snagged some when I was in Budapest. :lol:

It doesn't only sound legit, it is legit :mrgreen:

But why didn't you use the tail light paint?
It would have come out more red than black. I did this modification on my Mk2 a couple of years ago and now I did it on my Red and White tails.


If you guys need some euro stuff like glass headlights, clear corners, red/white tails it's all possible. :wink:

Good job. If you get me those two items I'll get you some USDM taillights. I see that you also did the wiper mod. It looks good.

thanks

i´ll check it around for those 2 items
the wiper was already sitting horizontal in mk2, only switched the arm, for a fiat punto mk1, more modern style i guess =)
i´ll consider those usdm tails :wink:

i really like a lot usdm semi clear front corners and repeaters, i used the rear lens of backing liht t to have some clear front repeaters, but i prefer the whole oem usdm set =)

If I remember reading the lawsuit correctly, the run of "GTi" badging was shipped to Europe then exhausted. ALL replacement NOS badging came with the "i" being in a color other than red.

When I bought my replacement badging directly from Suzuki of Japan, the "i" was silver. Red was stated to have been pulled and the Stock # was discontinued.
