Why no fog lamps on the 135i ?

Sorry if this has been asked before, but why no fog lamps on the 135i? The 128i looks to have them. I have had too many times that fog lamps were of great help to be happy about the 135i not having them.

The 135i does not have fog lamps because it comes standard with an ///M style body kit. Look at all the ///M cars (M5, M6, MZ4, M3) they dont have fog laps, the space is used to improve engine and brake cooling (maybe aerodynamics?).

I used to be a big fan of fog lamps, all BMWs that i have owned have had them. But now with the option of Xenons I don't see the need for them.

In San Diego, where we have fog sometimes, I'd like the option to have foglamps on my car. :iono:

They work.

Xenons are counterproductive in fog.

I can see AC Schnitzer kitt with dual fogs on each side (I see a lot of those on MB, Lorinzer?)

Only the 135i doesn't have the fog lamps.

When you order a 128i/120d/123d with M-Sport package you DO get the fog lamps.

The only reason I can think of is the one that's already mentioned: airflow for cooling the breaks.
