    Vauxhall Zafira.. bugging the hell outta me...

    Anybody know which bit was added as an afterthought? the hi-level stop light or the rear window wiper? It's silly - the wiper when it's parked obscures most of the stop light, making it a confusing odd shape in the dark...

    see?

    Can you not stop the wiper in mid-wipe so it's higher than the brake light?

    Of course, that would obscure your rear view, but at least people can see you braking properly!

    Vauxhall have done worse.....check out a Vectra Saloon SRi with high level rear brake light and the optional boot spoilier......with....wait for it...






    High level brake light built in.....

    so lets get this right....left brake light....right brake light.....high level brake light in rear window......high level brake liight in boot spoiler...

    tell ya what though....it damn well worked...

    cos when you put your foot on the brake, the current drain for all the bulbs slows the car faster than the 4 disk brakes.....the alternator is under more load at that point than a power station on Christmas Eve

    My Accord has a spolier as an optional extra, and according (sorry) to Honda's fitment instructions the high level brake light in the back window is unplugged when the one in the spoiler is plugged in.

    ....it's still there and scarily....if you have a light at the back that doesn't work, its an MOT failure

    OR so I understand....

    if it was REMOVABLE from inside the rear window it would be sensible, but it leaves a funny black area where the screen shading fits around it.

    Typical badly thought out old rubbish

    i dont see whats wrong with just having 2 tbh

    rear lights being out aint a problem unless they're some of the legal ones - like 2 brake lights, 2 indicators etc
