It could be that the wiring is just extended for right-hand-drive cars as they're probably a minority, so indeed best to check.

On the other hand it shows some weird/significant attention to detail (cost-cutting?) to leave out reflecting material on one side....

Incidentally I just checked the wiring was "live" by unplugging the fog light holder and plugging it into the other sides corresponding connector, before ordering anything.

Remember he's not talking about a D2, but "the old days" of adding fog lights to Japanese imports....
That said, the material I used was effectively kitchen foil reflectivity on an adhesive backing; just commonly-available aluminium adhesive tape.
