WTF. two bulbs on the right. But only one on the left ???!!!

It's now obvious that was how the rear fogs were supposed to be, and nothing was broken. Feeling a bit sheepish, I looked around to see what else I could do. I found lots of cabling on the trunk lid that could be source of rattles, and the bump-stop for the lid wasn't optimal. So I taped up everything and adjusted everything. Now I am absolute sure there could be no noises from the trunk lid. This wasn't what I set out to do. But it was satisfying fixing up the very last place on the rear of my car that could squeak or rattle.
Your car will only have one. BMW use this to identify on what side to overtake the car. With you being in London,thats why it is on the right hand side. There are only a few exception car manufactures who put in two.
