    Yes mate you will find that the cars come from the factory with only one working (either right/left depending on country it is due to go to).
    But if you look carefully in your N/S rear light cluster, you will notice a bulb where the other fog should be, all you have to do is wire it up to the other one and hey presto, you have to working fogs!

    No will not fail as the car was designed to only have 1 working rear fog.

    I can only assume that GM/vauxhall designed it like this to keep the cost down as they would of had to deisign and manufactory 2 different sets of rear lights so then the car would be legal in countries which drive on the right hand side, also makes it easy as if you do go over seas, all you do is wire the second one up instead of buying a new set of rear lights!

    Good thinking from GM if you ask me and i will soon be wiring mine up so both work

    if u never intend on going abroad (or driving on the right hand side of the road) then leave it as is.

    As long as the fog light on the drivers side works then thats the legal requirement covered.

    Personally though, I think i would prefer both lit so I can appreciate why u would wanna mod it
