Anyway to run Rear Fog lights w/o Bi-Xenons?

So I have been researching on how it may be possible to run the rear fog lights I setup with the halos/angel eyes on only. It seems the only way I can enable them is with the bi-xenons on. When I had my car coded the gentlemen informed me that there is no way to do it however my friend with a e90 335xi had that capability.

Is there any way to go about this?

Here is my car with the stock Pre-LCI tailights and the after with the Blackline LCI taillights:

I was wondering the same thing, for the E90 (my e90) at least you have to have the fogs in front on to enable the rears, anyway to enable just the rears via coding?

OP are you in southern westchester county, I have seen this car before on sprain/tsp/87 lol.

No clue.

Don't be a douche. Nobody wants to look at your rear fogs all the time - they are too bright and irritating for drivers behind you.

Headlights or front fogs need to be on in order to activate rears.

I love them. No better than people's bright HIDs.

It is no better than shitty HID kits. You are going to piss people off and potentially be dangerous. This is why BMW took away the button for us, because some asshat will drive around with it on all the time because they "love them"

I hate when I see mercs and audis driving around with the rear fogs constantly on. It looks retarded and it's not helping to light the road for you, so just leave it off.

Okay guys let's try and stay on topic here. This thread is not about your personal feelings towards running rear fogs when it is unnecessary.

The question is how to run the rear fogs without having the Bi-Xenons on.

In my E90 LCI (I have the dummy button going) I could put it into the parking light mode, engage my front fogs, engage my rear fogs, and THEN disengage my front fogs. The rear fogs, if memory suits me, will stay on. But, it's been a while since I've driven the BMW .
