What about those of us who already have foglights on our E92 N/A coupes?

I don't see how that front bumper with those new style fogs would work for us
What would be done with the existing fogs and housings? They are completely different.

Curious to hear feedback on anyone who has done this..

Existing fogs and housing cannot be re-used. The new fogs utilizes 9006 type bulbs (included) but requires an adapter to be used with your OEM harness (not included, but can be sourced from your local auto parts store easily).

And what about the Oil Cooler intake tract? It looks like the new foglight sits directly over it? If that is the case is there an option for no foglights? I've been looking at the e90 version but have been concerned about this.

The OC intake tract should fit, I haven't heard any issues in regards to this and these bumpers.

You can always remove the fog lamps and grilles yourself, but we include them for you.

There is no option to order w/o the fogs unfortunately.

Wow, $499!

That's about half the price of the OEM M-tech front.

Can't wait to see installed pix.

Agreed, it's a much better priced alternative. No need to wait for installed photos

Looks good on dark colors not so much on light colors without a more agressive hood.

I have this bumper and it is dead on fitment. As for the fogs, if you are using an HID kit like I am, who cares? Just retrofit the kit, and use 9006 HID bulbs. This kit is HIGHLY recommended.

Any trimming of the radiator shroud/support, brake or oil cooler vents? Or is it direct fit no modification?

The passenger side air duct will have to be extensively trimmed or removed.
