Thanks! Very nice of you.Welcome as new 'neighbour'
1. Yes but rear fog lights are red (like STRONG brakelights). Our white is also just backup light.outbackendurosx said:

And yep, Tahiti is great especially if you like the ocean, snorkeling or surfing (which I do a lot). But as much as I love my outback, I don't think I'll bring it back to Tahiti--a little truck is a bit more suitable there. But again, I may change my mind..
If you don't mind me asking, I have a couple things I am trying to modify (if I can) before I come to Norway:
1. You have a rear fog light right? I believe it is the left light on the trunk right? cause here, the lights on our trunk are just back up light. I'd like to modify mine so that it becomes a rear fog light...Do you have a separate switch for it on your dashboard or something? Or does the rear fog light turn on when you turn on the front fog lights? Picture of the switch would be awesome!
2. In America, the front blinkers (amber colors) stay continually on when we turn on our front headlights during nighttime. I know in Tahiti or France, it is not the case. These blinkers are only on intermittently when we signal turning . Is that the case for you?
3. Does your front headlights stay always on even during the day? They now have this feature here in America for safety reasons. They stay on but they are not as bright as if it was night time.
4. Finally I would love to see how your instrument cluster looks like--how different it is to mine...I can also post a picture of mine so we can compare..I just want to see your speedometer, and the lights that turn on in the cluster when you switch on the headlights and stuff.
If you can't do that. That's OK. But I am just trying to get ready in advance.
thanks for your reply. So does your rear fog light have a separate switch or turn on when you turn on the front ones? Do you know by chance the wattage of the light bulb? I'll try to install it ASAP...1. Yes but rear fog lights are red (like STRONG brakelights). Our white is also just backup light.
Yes it has a separate switch, but it is when you turn the knob to switch on the front fog lights, you then turn the knob a bit more to 'click' it on. You can not have the rear ones turned on without the front ones (that's a mistake for in sweden, you are not allowed to use front fog + dipped beam, but i guess it is okay in some way since it is EU classed as ok).outbackendurosx said:

Tack for your help! I appreciate it.
cool, quite the same set up then.outbackendurosx said:Dude, you are the man!! :6: Thanks for your pictures. I'll take a couple right now and post them so you can see how mine looks. So far, they look very similar except that mine has a bit more sporty look (because it is a turbo I guess), and I don't have all the gears LED since I have a manual transmission. I was more worried about the warning lights and such but they look really similar except that my brake warning light says "BRAKE" instead of the exclamation point, and my "check engine light" does not show an engine but says 'check engine'. Other than that, it looks pretty close. Oh and my speedo has both miles per hour and km/h.
Man it is already snowing at your place!! I can see on your windshield..
My favourite place up in your neck of the woods was Jokkmokk... I have driven many times from Trollhattan to Jokkmokk (while working for SAAB) both in winter and summer....1) Where are you?
2) What car are you driving?
3) Any club or suggested meet, or route tips?
