E92 - Xenon Flicker after fog light first use?

I'm hoping this will help diagnose problems with low beam xenon flicker on the E92. I have owned an 07 3 Series Coupe for about six months and have my lights on auto all the time with no problems. Yesterday i used my fog lights for the first time and this morning i had a warning light with down pointing lines indicating a light issue. I got out and noticed my nearside xenon was blinking. Does anyone know if this has something to do with the fog light or is it coincidence?

Thanks in advance

Karl

OE HIDs or aftermarket?

All standard equipment, I saw a thread mentioning to check that the grounding plates were secure on the tail lights and they seem fine.

I am in a position to get the car on ramps at my dads place to inspect at the weekend but I am unsure where to start as electrical faults are not my forte.

cheers

Ok I have had the car to bits this morning, I removed both wheel well covers and systematically swapped the xenon light, ignitor and ballast from left to right and the xenon blinking stayed on the nearside. therefore I have eliminated these components, any suggestions?
