Default IS-F Rear Fog Light inner lamps Option?

Hey Guys, after extensive searching, i found that the JDM version IS-F has rear fogs on the inner lamps, while the U.S inner OEM ones has the blocked hole for the Rear Fog light option.(Not sure if they can be removed).
Check out the photos and link below. The question is... Anyone rocking this on there IS-F? i also noticed that the newer LED tails have them as well (Japanesse & European Versions).

Is this a Canadian option?

would be a nice upgrade to have...

...not an option in Canada, but they were standard on the IS300 after 2002.

lol.....You guys know..... this sounds like all of the other people that complain about other modified car lighting......right?

Like HID fogs, 100% LED power on 2012 lights, upgrading to 6 or 8k bulbs etc....

Rear fogs if used properly can save lives.

I can see your point if he really wants to spend the money on this mod and actually only used it in super foggy conditions. Other than that it would just be super annoying and distracting for anyone following behind at night. Maybe Lexus doesn't put them on US cars for a reason?

The purpose is not to be Kool and have them. It's actually to serve its purpose. Some might think its annoying while others would love to have this mod. The lamp obviously has a blank plate on the inner lamps for the American version so I tried to get more information on it. I would love to have this mod but don't think ill get it anytime soon.

DANG!!! where was this? WHEN I NEEDED IT!!! > sheesh... I just bought connects for 194 bulbs and wired them to the LED that's already on there, so it all lights up.

Honestly... rear fogs are only useful for places that have really heavy FOG, useless for most US roads, but its fun to have if someone tail gates you, you can just flash them without slowing down or make it look like your brake checking with out slowing down. My best friend found the switch to put it on his BMW 1m, which is cool because it already had the rear fog bulb and harness already installed in the car, unlike Lexus they just decided to just block it off.

you can just simply drill a hole big enough and have it wired to have it light up like a regular light.
