Driving Lamps possibility?

I have seen Mini Coopers with driving lamps straight from factory, so wondering if there is a way to hook them up to my 1er. Attached is something similar to what id be interested in, though its for a Tundra pickup. Possible?

Universal fitment.

Simple enough to tap into existing headlight wiring, or route a standalone switch for separate power. Splicing with existing headlights runs the risk of causing voltage codes to be thrown.

Anyhow, these could look pretty cool mounted in the lower center grill.

Anyone know if wiring harness has plugs for front lamps? I have the front/ rear fog light switch in my car and would use the front for something like this.

Someone must have gotten that by now.

I don't recall the exact thread, but I do remember this topic being discussed not too long ago. Anyhow, the consensus seemed to be that our cars aren't pre-wired for foglamps like the 128i.

I have a mini cooper s with Hellas. I have them aimed on the shoulders trying to spot the deer.

The 1s headlights are WAY better than the minis.
