Bought a foglight from Tarmac. It's smoky grey which I thought would look good on my black zed. I didn't realise it was multi-function though (brake light, reversing light, fog light). Is this legal MOT-wise?

I have this on my Nismo, though not had the pleasure of an MOT yet.

However I can't see why it would be a problem as the car still performs all functions needed, IE rear foglight. You just have the bonus of additional reverser and brake lights.

 

Not that the red 'square' of light has a low and high brightness. With this in mind I use the lower red as a side/running light. Then brighter red for fog. I tried to hook up diodes so that the fog could also be brakes, but had issues and gave up.

Only problem could be if the reversing light is too bright for an over-zealous MOT tester person?

No worry of that :lol: it's quite dim compared to the rest of the rear. The red lights are nice, but reverse was disappointing. Installed pics in the eBay advert are taken by me :)

Thanks for that. I'm reassured, and the eBay pics are useful to have seen.

I have one fitted and the car passed the Mot in February with no problem, so you should be ok.
