It should be C-Dog
Mine has the wiring but no driving lights standard
All the wiring is there in all models as standard for all the extras(sunroof,driving lights)
I think Steve mentioned it before as well

Thanks Col, had lights from China but kept getting water in them so it\'s good to know about the wireing before getting the lights. B)

Chris, the wiring is there, all you need to do is identify it, what happens then is when you turn the fog lights on also the rear ( red bright ) fog light comes on. you can have them both working separately though.

Hi Chris,

There is the wiring harness for the factory fog-lights there, it depends on what you mean by driving lights.....
If you mean lights that supplement the high beam, then you will need extra wiring.
If you mean Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) as we have on ours you will also need extra wiring (which I guess you already have for your LEDs).

If you are talking about the factory fog-lights, a couple of points-
as Luis mentions, in the Classic model the multi-function switch only allows for the rear fog-light. If you don\'t change the multi-function switch you will have all sorts of dramas with the lighting, and possibly the police and other road users because your rear fog-light will also be on.
Also, if you fit the fog-lights and intend to use them regularly, be aware that you should also fit a relay (spliced into the existing wiring) to avoid the well documented problem of the contacts in the multi-function switch burning out due to the excessive heat build up.
This occurs because the whole 10amps drawn by the fog-lights runs through the contacts in the switch, a relay places this drain elsewhere, thus protecting the contacts.
