Euro LCM

Has anyone swaped out there LCM for the Euro LCM to activate the rear fogs? I have read post on the e-90-92 forum that have done this. I did it in my e-46 M years ago. Can this be done on the e-92?

thank you thats good work, however I'll spring for the LCM @ $65.00. What you answered for me was that the M's have the relay installed for the light.

I have something in mind, many people will bash me however I may take my car to a custom body shop here locally and have them fab my front bumper with e-46 fog lights. Controling them with the Euro LCM. I now need to find out how many watts the rear bulbs are. I know that the front fogs on a E-46 are 55 watts. I will dig into it this weekend to find the wire comming out of the relay and the wire gauge.

thanks for your input.

how do I get an exclamation point on my display? That looks like something out of Metal Gear Solid. It would make for a funny picture.
