Their not needed for the m.o.t but it would be nice to get them working.

I thought if you had them, then they had to work.
On Ferrari, rear fog switch is up by rear view mirror, always gets the MOT testing to work hard, lol.
Clearly Venturi has a switch some where, unless they only work when driving lights are on.

on a 610, front spots on on with full beam only, fogs are on a separate switch.
French logic may carry over?

Seem to think that headlights in on position and then switch on centre console, but will check.

Simon, its the front fogs / driving lights that dont work. The rear fog has to work for m.o.t

I don't have a separate switch for the front fogs so I guess it must work like the A610.

Just remembered!!!!! They are not fog lights but additional driving lights..... Basically they are there for when you want to flash your lights and the headlights are in the down position............... :Douh

It is the same .....flashing the lights just flashes the driving lights in the bumper, rather than lifting the pop up units.

So I drove the Venturi to work today the first time its been on the road in 10yrs and 3 years since i bought it.

I still have a load of snagging issues but on the whole it drove very well currently only running 0.35bar boost untill I get the boost control solenoid fitted.
