Fog Lamps getting too old fashioned?

Recommended Posts

I have been observing new cars that are launched these days miss a very subtle detail in the front bumper, fog lamps. Fog Lamps are being ditched by car makers. At the moment, its happening at the high-end spectrum of cars, but this new trend may work its way to the lower-end cars in a matter of time.

Some examples - 

New Mercedes E-Class, S-class, A-class

New Jaguar XE XF, XJ, F-Type

Upcoming BMW 6-series GT

Some manufacturers have done away with them completely on the lower end too, companies like, Honda, Hyundai, etc. but people have not noticed the missing detail.

Back in the day, Fog Lamps on the lower end of the front bumper made it known to people, that the car was the highest specification (Look at me, I'm rich, poor people). It also used to add a bit of glitz, but now, stuff like air curtains, DRLs or just a black plastic has taken their place.

Is it okay to let them go just yet?
