Performance Front bumper question

Ive been thinking about getting a performance front bumper for my 1'er and I was just wondering does it have a fog light slot?

Ive been looking at multiple pictures and it seems like no fog lights are present... Looks like they turned that area into a brake air duct.

I know man. HIDs blow hardcore in the fog and nobody realizes it. Im working on a way of retrofitting fogs on the car. I just cant find the bus to plug them into.

Ya I know what you mean. I loved my HID fogs in my 335i. I used them all the time, they were so bright I would drive around like this sometimes hahaha. (pic below)

From what I remember, there were no fogs on the 135 because the area where you put the fogs in are converted to ducts to cool the big front brakes.

Thats absolutly correct. But there are other places on the front valence that can be used to mount fogs, I just need a wiring diagram of the car, which BMW wont give me.

i wonder why they didnt include them as part of the headlight

on my G35, the fogs are part of the actual headlight, they are just aimed down

its crazy what a diff they make in the fog or in heavy rain, HID dont do much at that point
