No response to my PM either. I guess I'm stuck spending $200 to get a new light control module if I want the rear fogs to work.

I did last week, and up until today I had not heard back from him either.

I finally received a PM from him. Does anyone know where/how he got involved with this product? What happened to William?

He simply stated he still has the piece available and quoted me a price for it shipped.

Has anyone else bought this from him? I still don't have a response from William and I don't know whether to trust nikk6.

Thoughts?

Hello everyone, my name is Nick. William Chang is my old employee. He wasn't selling these buttons under my business but he left them here when he quit. My dad actually made the buttons for him and he owes my dad a lot of money. I just found this today he left his password on my shop computer. I will do 1 of 2 things, if you purchased a button I will send it to you for free and if you still need one there is a few left. I see a few complaints and pms, so don't go trying to get a free button, these are for the guys who paid and didn't receive it. I would be pissed too. If you need to contact me outside of E90post, you can email me at Nickk6@cox.net.


So it looks like William needs to get a banstick here for ripping off other members AND the producer of the pieces. What a POS.

Just installed mine too. Piece of cake.

I have a 2008 version of the Euro LCM with rear fog switch for sale in the classifieds section (I ordered it before I found the '09 version at Rover Active).

Just noticed one thing, on the regular 3 series gauge, there are both front and rear foglight icons in the gauge, but there's no rear foglight indicator icon in the M3.
