Top rated seller and only about 35 dollars shipped, poke around ebay if you want them cheap

Also, these look plastic if that's alright with you (My original ones are very thick glass)

youll be better off with ebay ones than those, cheaper and will break in the same amount of time. as long as you have the harness and bulbs you're good

Thanks, yeah they came stock. What model/year is your car? I'm pretty sure the wiring's there, you'll just need the sockets (Most fog light sets seem to come with them, including the ones you linked).

Postby tkosixfifty » Wed Sep 07, 2011 11:12 pm

i have a 1992 318is. on my dash i dont have the switch its just a piece of plastic thats covering the hole. And im pretty sure theres no wires where the foglights are supposed to be on the bumper. Haha but who knows i may not be seeing it. Can you clarify?

If there's no button I'm betting their are no wires. Here's what I found after searching for awhile:

"I recently connected foglights to my car that was not pre-wired for them. The wiring harness is part #61129410398. If you don't already have it, you will also need the switch (#61311387054) and the relay (#61361388364)."

The problem is all these part numbers are for european models. Try looking through the parts selections here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/
