I was able to break the hard-to-reach tabs by using a pick tool. If you have one you won't have to pull the button off the get to it.

Mod worked beautifully on my 2010 135i. All I had to do was remove the switch and trim off the 4 tabs on the lower button. Great (and useful) freebie mod!

Thanks fellow 1addicts

How do you know if you have the adaptive braking on your car. I bought mine in Europe but I ordered it us spec because I knew I was coming back here. If I tear it out and do all this it might not work because I don't have the extra bulb? Might be stupid questions but I really want rear fog lights. And I would like to hard wire my radar detector to the front fog lights button because I don't have those either.

Research whether or not adaptive braking was even available on 2009 builds??? Or, look on your spec sheet or follow your car and have someone step on the brake...then have them slam on your brakes...is there any difference in the number of lights and strength of lights?

According to this
http://www.peterpanbmw.com/specs-and-photos-overview-bmw-1_series-2009-307836.html?isfullwebsite=true
Adaptive brake lights are a standard safety feature and all 1ers. Reference paragraph 6.

Just did my 09. Cut a pen barrel and trimmed some pieces out of the cap to my tire foam can, haha. Super glued them to the rubber points and glued the pen barrels to the plastic. Works great. That's really dumb that all the wiring and buttons and everything are there and they won't just let them work from the factory. Doesn't make sense.

Also worked on an '09 128i. I believe all US Spec 1'ers have adaptive braking standard..
