  DIY- Rear Fog Lights
brianlay

US cars can have the rear foglights enabled by replacing the light switch with the Euro version. These are the same lamps already installed as adaptive brake lights. While the rear fogs are switched on, the adaptive brake light function is disabled.

Yes it was when I orderd it too - check bac a couple of pages. It took about 3 weeks total - but you asked about shipping which was about 4 days once they got it in stock.

Yeah we're still trying to work the bugs out with the site so we can get a S&H calc somewhere in the order process. Overall is everyone happy with their switches? -JD



PS: You guy's have any X3's? I got a great deal on the 19's.

JD...once again, thanks!!

The switch worked perfectly, it was the installation that was a pain.

Please keep us posted from time to time of any parts that may be of interest to us...

taking out the driver's side trim is PITA if its stuck in there badly.

Mine was stuck pretty good. I was sweating. and of course, cursing like no other. even my dog was looking at me all weird.

JD, the switch worked perfectly. The packaging was good and it arrived very quickly.

Thanks for helping make this mod happen.

Please keep us up-to-date on new parts or accessory availability. We're always looking for "Euro only" parts.

If you get a line on availability of the rear view backup camera for the E90 (part 66210412010 or 66210407001). It doesn't come up on your site. Can you get and how much? Will it work with our iDrive system here?
