US specs car to EU Specs

For all those that want to import or bring your US car into Europe, here is what I changed to get it as EU as possible.
First I had some required changes in order to have it imported into Holland, then I made some voluntary changes.

Required:
- Orange front leds to be taken out
- Fog lights and Fog light switch
- Orange rear turn signals

Voluntary:
- EU Speedo and Rev meter
- Clear front reflectors
- EU mirrors (with 'dead angle' view)

Other changes:
- '09 iDrive knob
- 456PS
- Speed limiter removed
- EU Navi-maps...

For importing I was not allowed to have a fog light switch for front and back fogs, as no front fogs are present.

You must change the US settings to Canadian settings in order to have the KMH-Speedo and cruise control working properly.
