lol, there's probably a billion of us who have the same problem, BMW foglights are suckers for stone chips.

Denver just got a lot of snow and that storm is moving east. We will get the rain from that storm, not sure what you guys may get from it.

At least the rock didn't hit your windshield leaving a crack and scaring the shit out of you at 120km/h

They should fix all the potholes that have come up too...esp with all the bikes comming out...you should see Steeles Ave heading westbound between Birchmount and Warden and there's a big-ass one just before Victoria Park.

If you want to save your fog lights go to Canadian Tire buy the clear plastic film and place it over the lenses. Not only will this protect your fog lights from cracking but from fading from the sandblasting affect from road debris. Depending on your driving you might have to replace the film 2 or 3 times a year.

I bought the M3 Fogs (Glass) from the stealer cuz I didn't like my old plastic ones... they fad after time! Plus they match with my ZKW DDE's from Umnitza (Also glass). It makes the front end look so much nicer.
