Fog Lights

Can't seem to find a conclusion on what bulbs fit my non m-tech e92 fog lights,
What are the bulbs called H11/H8 or something else?

Another thing, I found these bulbs, but want to know whether they will throw me an error code if I install them, or I need coding done?

They will throw error codes and also will not project light. It will only be "visible". As for the bulbs, look it up on sylvania bulb guide

If you have the stock bumper and not the M-Tech, you need H8 bulbs for your fog lights. Best bet is to get a standard bulb or HID kit (55W) if you don't want any problems.

Will these bulbs work without an HID kit?

I put GP 8500's in my 2011 335i Coupe.
Perfect, no errors. 7500's should do fine
also.

Yes. I have them and it's a nice white light. No hid conversion. The pics I took don't really show the difference as it was daytime when I took them. For $12 bucks they're awesome. I wish I would have seen the 55w version and tried them. Mine are 35w.

Alright, but I'm not really looking for the white light, more like a blue'ish light, like angel eyes?

Not kit. Just the bulbs.
