The Rear foglight can be either on the center of the vehicle, or on the Driver’s side. You can also mount them in pairs.

Rear fog lamps
In Europe and other countries adhering to UN Regulation 48, vehicles must be equipped with one or two bright red “rear fog lamps”, which serve as high-intensity rear position lamps to be turned on by the driver in conditions of poor visibility to make the vehicle more visible from the rear. The allowable range of intensity for a rear fog lamp is 150 to 300 candela, which is within the range of a US stop lamp (brake light). Rear fog lamps are not required equipment in the US, but they are permitted and are found almost exclusively on European-brand vehicles in North America. Audi, Jaguar, Mercedes, MINI, Land Rover, Porsche, Saab, and Volvo provide functional rear fog lights on their North American models. Some vehicles from non-European brands which are adaptions of European-market offerings.

Most jurisdictions permit rear fog lamps to be installed either singly or in pairs. If a single rear fog is fitted, most jurisdictions require it to be located at or to the driver’s side of the vehicle’s centreline—whichever side is the prevailing driver’s side in the country in which the vehicle is registered. This is to maximize the sight line of following drivers to the rear fog lamp. In many cases, a single reversing lamp is mounted on the passenger side of the vehicle, positionally symmetrical with the rear fog. If two rear fog lamps are fitted, they must be symmetrical with respect to the vehicle’s centreline.

Proponents of twin rear fog lamps say two lamps provide vehicle distance information not available from a single lamp. Proponents of the single rear fog lamp say dual rear fog lamps closely mimic the appearance of illuminated stop lamps (which are mandatorily installed in pairs), reducing the conspicuity of the stop lamps’ message when the rear fogs are activated. To provide some safeguard against rear fog lamps being confused with stop lamps, UN Regulation 48 requires a separation of at least 10 cm between the closest illuminated edges of any stop lamp and any rear fog lamp.

Which side is the driver’s side in Fruinia?


#183

Right, I think?


#184

personally, i think twin fog lamps are safer as in my opinion , if mounted singly, in poor visibility you could mistake the car it is attached to for a motor cycle, if mounted in pairs, paralell to eachother it gives a sense of width to the automobile they are attached to and as such convey more information to those behind said automobile they are affixed to


#185

I’m going by mainland europe so all the cars in my version of Fruinia and Gallia drive on the right side with left hand traffic. I noticed you were one of the few that submitted a Left hand drive car though, which is ok, I’m not going to nitpick about which side the steering wheel is on as long as everything is properly mirrored to reflect it.


#186

so cars drive on the right hand side of the road and the steering wheel is on the left hand side of the automobile , in the manner of france, germany, italy and the like?


#187

Unless you’re driving an asian import, yes. The steering wheel is on the left.


#190

You Know, this forum has a Private Messaging System for such questions.

EDIT: Yes.


#191

So, since my initial entry had a basic interior and that was… strongly discouraged by Quotex, I have gone to the opposite end of the spectrum and am submitting the luxury model of the Eagle line, the 2.0L. It’s no turbocharged BETA Maxx Eagle, but it’s a steal at 15,000 ducats. The newspaper ad still shows the base model, so it’s hidden.

#192

wait… which is it? 13.500 or 15.000??

the post you said 15.000 the ad says 13.500


#193

The 13500 $ one


#194

Hence “from 13,500.” It’s like saying “starting at.” The basic model is 13,500. This is the luxury model, for 15,000. That’s pretty normal I think - most ads in real life give you the price for the base model nobody actually buys.


#195

right. that’s fair. i missed that.
thanks


#196

ah yes Euro spec American cars, with ghetto rear fog lights and shoe-horned amber rear turn signals, nicely done :ok_hand:


#197

Ad for the 1983 Halcón Obrero EX. Value trim of the Obrero range.

EDIT: More images of the finalized car with 95 HP.

#198

To get around lhd and rhd issue, put wipers that aren’t driver’s side specific like the ones on the Citroen Xsara Picasso and the never Opels/Vauxhalls


#199


#200

Original advertisement for the 1983 Tanaka Laventa 2.0 G. The Laventa model is only available in Europe (and Frunia in this case too).

More please...





#201

Deleted the old, and made a new, higher quality two-page advertisement to marketing-talk the Clairvoyance.

Stats that might give away clues to others have been blacked out, of course.


#202

When submitting the car can we submit multiple colours so that you will be able to choose the one you like the best as every customer would @Quotex?
