Out of curiousity, you say that fog lights aren't necessary in normal conditions and yet you have all that wired to the front of a 'Toorak Tractor'?

I hardly think fog lights on a VE commo will burn someones retinas out.

Sorry to sound a little harsh but it sounds a little hipocritical to me.
Yes, driving lights, they are used for driving in the night time, unlike for lights which should only be used in the fog, because they light up the reflectors, and the side lines on the road.

The reason for so many lights on the front of the 4WD is because we have had 2 new front ends on it in the last year thanks to roos.

AND i never said VE foggies will burn your retina out, i mean all the lights on the front of the 4WD, will get turned on when people approach me with their fog lights on because its, illegal and rude, also inconsiderate.

So i am a big idiot for turning on both sets of drivings lights, which are perfectly legal to supplement your standard high beam, is that what your saying? please explain to me why i am an idiot when these help people see further?

Where as fog lights if properly adjusted will light up directly around the front of the car, and are illegal to use unless its foggy.

I think he's saying if you turn all your lights on your 4wd on when someone passes with their fog/driving lights on then your an idiot?

I'm staying out of this discussion lol. Just noticed its been brought up again so was interested to see whats being said now lol.

For the record it doesn't bother me either way if someone drives past with their fog/driving lights on. Do find it a bit weird when they're on during the day though. But each to their own.

Yes actually i have, they turn them off, same as when the pigs approach me with the high beam on, no one, and mean no gets my sympathy when they leave their high beam or fog lights on behind or approaching another car because it is the rudest, most inconsiderate and dangerous thing when driving in the night time.

And if the copper tries to book me for i whip out my camera phone take a photo oh his fog lights on and he can't book you for doing it if he is doing it.

Same as they tried to breath test me twice the other night in he same pull over session i refused the second one because it was like 5 minutes after the first one and there was jack he could do about it because i dropped the word harassment, he said OK then and left it at that.

Pfffft! They're driving lights in my opinion. Disagree if you want but I don't give a ****. I will ALWAYS drive with mine on as they aren't even as bright as the headlights and do not dazzle oncoming traffic.
You must have demerit points to give away, it is ILLEGAL!

217 Using fog lights
(1) The driver of a vehicle fitted with front fog lights or rear fog
lights must not operate the fog light unless the driver is
driving in fog or other hazardous weather conditions causing
reduced visibility.
Offence provision.
(2) In this rule:
front fog light means a light (other than a headlight) fitted
to the front of a vehicle to improve illumination of the road
in fog, snowfall, heavy rain or dust clouds.
rear fog light means a light (other than a brake light, a tail
light, a number plate light or a reversing light) fitted to the
rear of a vehicle to make the vehicle more easily visible
from the rear in fog, snowfall, heavy rain or dust clouds.

What a typical wanka attitude to have on the road?

219 Lights not to be used to dazzle other road users
A driver must not use, or allow to be used, any light fitted to
or in the driver’s vehicle to dazzle, or in a way that is likely
to dazzle, another road user.


And if the copper tries to book me for i whip out my camera phone take a photo oh his fog lights on and he can't book you for doing it if he is doing it.
300 Use of mobile phones
(1) The driver of a vehicle (except an emergency vehicle or
police vehicle) must not use a mobile phone that the driver
is holding in his or her hand while the vehicle is moving, or
is stationary but not parked, unless the driver is exempt from
this rule under another law of this jurisdiction.

Same as they tried to breath test me twice the other night in he same pull over session i refused the second one because it was like 5 minutes after the first one and there was jack he could do about it because i dropped the word harassment, he said OK then and left it at that.
If you refuse to submit to a breath analysis test then you will be charged with high range PCA (prescribed concentration of alcohol) irrespective of your actual PCA. The maximum penalty fDisqualification MaximumDisqualification Automaticor this offence is a fine of $3,300.00 or imprisonment for 18 months or both (in the case of a first offence) or a fine of $5,500.00 or imprisonment for 2 years or both (in the case of a second or subsequent offence).

If you can't live by the rules then get off the road...

Reviving an old thread here. The berlina lights can be hooked up to the factory switch. My dads car was wired up by an auto electrician and they got it working off the switch. No symbol on the dash but it all works. I'll try and work out how they did it and maybe post a how to on it. For those in SA that want it done, the guys at Elizabeth Auto Electrics were the ones that wired it up so go see them as they now know how to do it. My dads car was the guinea pig for this.

When you say factory switch, is that the omega light switch, or did you buy an sv6/ss light switch? Are the sv6 light switches the same as vz/vy where you flick it to parkers then pull the switch out a click to turn spotties on, or are they different? Interested as I am looking at doing this to my one, so wanting to know if I need to buy one of those.

Yes by factory switch I mean the SV6/SS/Berlina/Calais/Statesmans/HSV, lol (they are used in so many models now). The switches are like the VY/VZ ones where you pull them out to activate the foglights but are a different switch. So basically the answer to your question is yes, you need to buy a foglights equipped switch.

Also to add something to that you can also buy the loom that plugs into the foglights to make it easier. This loom plug into both foglights then goes to a plug (doesn't exsist on the omegas). This makes it easier cos the auto elec can tap into the plug and not direct to the lights. The connections to the lights are a weather proof design so water doesn't get into them. The loom requires you taking your front bar off to run it as it clips onto the front bar. You'll see what I mean when you get the loom and try and fit it to the car.

The part number for this loom is 92172577. You should be able to get this from any Holden spare parts dealer. We got ours from moter traders and it only costs $20.75. Makes things a little easier for the electrician or yourself.

P.S Sorry about the long post, :p.

I think they are cheaper than that. Try Holden spare parts first. Can't remember the cost of them but didn't think they cost that much.

Aaaanyway back to fog lights on an omega lol ;)

I have just purchase a VE SS front bumper (came with grills + foggies) on ebay for $300. It is a near new bumper already painted in my colour and only done 500ks.

Anyway, enouh of my great buy haha. (i think so anyway). I need to get my foggies wired up to my Omega. I will probably purchase the interior light switch that includes the foglight switch. Has anyone successfully wired up the foglights, i need to know what to do from here.

Cheers,
Dave
