you can always just swap out the button covers from your stock switch...

As far as I know, BWM doesn't make a switch with the rear fog light switch, and no switch for the front fogs.

yeah, i guess when you think about it it really wouldn't make too much sense for them to do that.

Except for this case, where front fogs do not come on any version, but rear fogs are mandated in Europe, I believe.

I'm thinking I will use the front fog button to activate my forward firing bazooka which dispatches "left lane lurkers" that is folks going slow in the left lane who won't yield the left lane to faster traffic from behind them.

Isn't that what the Euro M3 has? Or does the Euro M not have rear fogs enabled either?

So whats that part number??? Maybe our friends across the pond can get it for us?


and on the center console you can see the pdc button next to the heated seats and rear shade buttons for those lucky enough with front pdc sensors

super gold star for who can get that to work

I like having the option to use the front foglight switch (unused) for something else in the future. Heck if I put the blank switch on top of it from my removed light switch it would be stealthy too.

Now, where do I find a bazooka.

I buddy of mine has a train horn on his lifted F250 4x4. It is louder than shit. There's an awesome use of a blank switch. LOL

I think the conducters special will work just fine...152db...yeah baby

Damn, no star for me?

So there must be a Euro part. Someone be brave and pick one of those random part numbers that haven't been tried. Haha. Dont' blame me if you get missile launcher buttons instead though.
