It must happen fairly often since my salescritter explicitly warned me about

I guess it wouldn't be such a problem is it weren't so well integrated into
the taillight cluster... it's more obvious that it's a fog light if it's
located some distance from the standard lights (like under the bumper - the
seemingly traditional location).

It *is* unfortunate that you're likely to attract the (generally unwanted)
attention of the constabulary by using safety equipment like rear fog lights.
