install M aerodynamic kit on 335xi - problem with fog lights

I have completed the installation of the full M aerodynamic kit on my 2007 335xi. I now have an error with what i believe is the fog lights.

anyone can help me out? what parameters need to be updated by my dealer? and to what value?

thanks

You would have to have them code out the warm and cold testing on the front fog lights to not active.
Or come on down to the Bay Area and we'll take care of you

what is "wrong" with the M fog light? what is the difference?
can I simply change the light bulb to a different type to avoid recoding ?

Is it an OEM kit?
We could see if there was a valid OEM retrofit K word to add to your VO.
Who did the install?

yes, this is the OEM Aerodynamic kit
The install was done at a local body shop.

you need a 9006 harness and bulbs with that kit - perhaps the shop did not do the harness conversion properly (polarity)? Do the fogs turn on at all?

^Exactly.
It seems like there is a hardware issue somewhere.
I'd get that solved before looking into error deletes with coding.

yes, the fog lights work very well. I can turn them on/off with the switch.

the error in the cluster is a yellow builb with a "!" in the middle. the manual says "bulb of exterior lighting system failed" I have check everything, all bulbs are ok. the only thing that have changed is the new fog lights from the OEM M aero kit.
