JCW Aero rear bumper lights

Are these lights supposed to be fog lights? The passenger side light comes on in reverse, so I guess they are backup lights? Drive side I can't get to come on with brakes or backup.

Any suggestions what the drive side light is? Bulb is good but I can't get it to light up.

Passenger side is the reverse light and driver's side is the rear fog light. 4th toggle switch from the left in the low bank of toggles, next to the passenger window toggle

There is no switch in that position. Even though it came from the factory like this, I'm surprised there isn't a switch for the driver side light. Weird.

You can add the switch and program it then it will work

or change the driver side to this reverse light and run a wire from the pass side to have two reverse lights

Makes backing up much easier

Just a little something extra - should you want to use the fog lites with (?) your hi beams just switch on the rear fog and you can blind everyone. Try it.

Is that not a parking light? They were at least in the cars I drove in different EU and African countries. LHD had the reverse on the right, parking on the left and the RHD's had them swapped. I think it is for the narrow roads in the EU? For those cars you either had to turn on the indicator to the left (for LHD) or turn on the parking lights.

But maybe on these they are as stated above? What do I know? I drive a R53 with a single center fog and TWO reverse lights
