yeah i saw that the other day and was intrigued because my base model doesnt have them. Make it look weird. How was the installation? Did it have instructions with it? I assume the quality is decent, my old e36 had those same fogs but with the stock harness.

Yea i have a base model too, I hated the look of no fog lights so i just decided to put them on. Yea there's instructions but they aren't specific to the Ti. Well there's a picture that helps but it isn't the Ti dash. But it's easy it took me a couple of days because i didn't know what i was doing. But if you do get them I can help you out.

Actually I'm looking for the factory stuff, the ones on ebay look aftermarket. At one time I think BavAuto had the kit. Not big on ganking the original wiring this almost always leads to problems.
Might consider elchicano318ti's setup, to me it just looks horrible without fogs

I was thinking about that BavAuto kit, i'd seen it before. They do still have it for $180. You ahve to search under another car though, doesnt show up under ti. I found it under 1997 328i in the fog light section.

Yea that's why it took me so long to install my fogs, i wanted to make sure i didn't want my wiring to mess anything up. So far its still good, knock on wood. If you just want the wiring i think you can find it too and just go with the stock fogs. IMO i didn't like the stock so i went with the smoked fogs.

Yeah the bavauto kit is a little pricey for me. The ebay kit is a much nicer price. The fogs it comes with ARE pretty ugly but i can get over it. Better than the holes in my bumpers.

If you don't want the fogs then just buy the harness, but you can always tint spray them and I think it will kinda look like mine. Just go to my gallery you'll see my set up of the fogs, i think i have a pic in there with out them.

A relay is a relay. The fog switch for the ti factory fogs is specific, but a switch is a switch (I'm using one similar to the ebay for driving lights).

Really, the "harness" is just a bunch of color-coded wires and a few connectors. You should be able to find a generic wiring diagram somewhere on the internet (hint: Hella released one some time ago).
