There aren't that many Xm's with the non foglight lower indicator units. To determine if this is the correct
pattern for you (I'm pretty sure it is from the close ups) the light unit has a single plastic front whereas
the additional foglight unit has a 1/2 and 1/2 plastic/glass split - only Citroen!! :roll:

Obvioulsy all the s1 units will fit but the wiring would be needed to put some life in the 'spare' foglight
unit part if you fit these.

Well obviously if you have a choice you should fit units with foglights, plus the switch and wiring to operate them. Then you can drive around at night with them on like half the other drivers on the road :lol: .

its true but what you really should do is turn your rear fogs on when it rains thats the way to go :evil:

The other day at night I saw an MGF where the (white) reverse lights had been hooked to be "on" with the rear lights.... :shock:

Can't miss him of course!

I believe that's what we call screwed up wiring or MG dealers (as was) called a characteristic?
