Rear light swap-out, wiring etc??

Hey peeps,

So, i've exported my UK spec 147 to Germany. I'm about to go through the registration process so have been getting my lights in order.

Ive just swapped out the two boot mounted lights (Reverse and Fog) for LHD versions - complete piece of cake - however i now of course have the issue of the reverse light being a fog light and vice versa.

Before i head down a splice and dice route, can the lights be programmed via FES? I.e. tell bella that her drivers side rear fog light is now a reverse light??

If its not possible i'm happy to do some wire chopping as its just a case of running enough cable from where it was at one light to the other - which will probably be as quick!

On the subject of wiring - would i be safe in thinking some bog standard electrical cable will suffice?

Hi antpal

i am in the similar situation. importing my uk 2003 147 lusso car into switzerland. have found some lhd lights on german ebay. procedure for changing the fronts looks ok from what i can tell. how did you get on with it?

but not sure about the rears. how did you go about the wiring?

any advice you could give would be really appreciated.
