The B5.5 already has 4 brake lights (5 if you count the center light), are you sure your not thinking of the rear fog light?

No I was just reading the Info forum's "Extra brake light mod w/o rear foglight" and wondered if B5.5 was do-able as well. So there's not really any extra lighting available then like there is in B5?

The B5.5 has no more room for any more lights unlike the B5. Although the Euro rear holder and lens allows you to add two extra bulbs to each side. there are actually less lights used for brakes so that really does not answer your question.

the B5 has the bottom slot next to the backup light empty, whilst the B5.5 has no empty slots, afaik

you might have just set the record for resurrecting the oldest zombie thread here.

I did a strip of LED's in my trunk for extra light, seems Bentley did the same thing, except they probably used Diamonds filled with gipsy tears.
