I ran across it again and had a good laugh from the posts so felt it would be a good reminder to all to not do this.

Thanks for bumping. When I first saw this, I thought it was terrible. Now it's just meh. Not horrible. It would look better if headlights and angel eyes were white tho.

which is the point of a fog light. low light so that you can see through the fog. led/hid fog lights are ridiculous, BMW NA must agree with me because it doesn't allow rear fogs as americans cant handle the choice of when to use them.

to the op, hahah that is the worst install ever! why not at least try to retro fit the existing foglight switch to work them. instead you drilled a very expensive front bumper and light switch. what is it they say about money and good taste?

not my style, I think the ONLY way to make it look decent is somehow retrofit the 335is lights into the air vents. But you risk blocking your oil cooler

For me it's function over form.
Then you should of installed foglights! You car already has DRL's and you managed to install a 2nd set!
