Thumbs up My First Mod!! Rear Fog Lights

Finally decided to do the “rear fog lights”, it was a process but I ended up doing it. Everything’s really like Lego’s honestly, just have to be “Gentle & Patient”. I used a Carwash Members Card, Movie Theater Points Card, a Blade/Butter knife. The button was already there what helped was you guys that posted things before. I actually liked it so much I called my friend up and did it for his 328xi 2011 sedan. It Looks Nice, I was driving with it on and honestly a lot of people wouldn’t as Tail Gate as they use to. I went to Astoria Strip right after I did it on my car and I forgot when I parked in front of someone I had them on so when I came out to look at my car and then looked at them I realized they were squinting because I had my rear fog lights. It’s definitely something you shouldn’t abuse. But like I would have to say is that Our lights look better than Audi’s rear fogs and The RANGES which are extremely bright as well. THANK YOU DIY..What I think would be sick is if you can just rock idle lights with the REAR FOGS, if anyone did it please let me know..Btw this took my like 30mins (just being honest)

Thank you Once again


Regular Lights


Gauge's (Rear Fog Light Symbol)

BTW IF YOU GUYS DID SOME MODS ON YOUR "whips" POST THEM UP

I have my rear fogs, but I just bought the switch. It is useful in heavy storms, or when someone is on my ass and i want them to back off, but I wouldn't run them all the time.

I HATE it when people leave them on the entire time. It is very annoying, so I am happy bmw didnt include it for the average consumer, as most mercedes drivers dont care and blind you the entire time they are driving...

Did the rear fogs on my e90 as well, just took a couple minutes and some pieces of plastic part from a pen with some glue to make the switch works, got the idea from another DIY page on here, really cool as everyone mentioned its good for bad weather.
