Re: rear lights

Rear fog lights are or were an option on Altezza's they even got same rear fog light switch as Lexus IS200/300 so light set up be same as Euro IS200/300. If yours got OEM fog light switch then it was specified option. Just like headlight washers was too but not many Altezza got them.
