I love that interior color combo. I just recieved bad news from the dealer. They will only give me $3200 for the touring and $2500 for the Altima. Oh well.

It's funny... people who drive anything expensive often get labeled by folks who drive less expensive cars. I have found, without exception, that douchebags cover all demographics and incomes. You can be an douchebag in either a Echo or an Escalade.

That's a bit much for that touring imo, especially since it's not optioned out all the way.

I was thinking it was overpriced. Especially when I can pickup a similar mileage ZHP for the same price.

The Touring has 167K and the Altima has 145K. I told them to go pound sand. If I listed the touring right now on craigslist I could easily get $6500 around here.

I was curious to see what is needed to retrofit euro rear fogs on my Touring?

Delmarco did it with a sedan:

Delmarco put them on left and right to avoid that problem.

i know...I had them that way on my Jetta GLX and GTi's back in the day...had Euro switch's to control them and everything

i just would want to do them correctly and have a Euro switch on my cars to control them - that sounds expensive and a hassle since I am certain the switch (LCM) would need to be coded

Delmarco says he spent $30 and 2 DIY hours to install Euro fogs. I don't really see the need for them, but if you like them, he has a DIY on how to install.

I might have look into this. I'm tired of people tailgating me or not seeing me in fog or in a blizzard. I was almost rear ended by an idiot in a speeding SUV this morning while it was snowing.

Euro rear fog orientation these days seem to be all over the place.

Recent Jags/Range Rovers/Mini's and other cars made in England seems to have them on both sides.

Audi's use to have them on one side but then switched to both sides. Mercedes have them on 1 side as well as some other German vehicles IIRC.

My main beef with them being on the US cars is most of the dumb US drivers don't know how to properly use them.

Not to mention the schmuck in the Jag or Land Rover that slows down traffic on the highway because the people following it think he's braking all the time in clear weather.

Ironically the US Oldsmobile Aurora had the dual rear fogs which didn't make any sense to me.

Anybody seen this touring on eBay with 3K miles? Wonder what it was doing between those miles?
