Damn, noone gave you any love LOL.

Brackets, I doubt you have any brackets if the fog light place is covered by that cap. You can just as easily buy foglights+brackets from eBay/dealership/wherever you gettin it' from.

As for wiring, look under your hood, if you have spare wires running on the left tand right side, that can extend to the foglights, then you have it- it'll look like plastic tabs [female] plugs.

If not ... you're going to have to run it!

Hope dis helps.

LMAOOO The fog light button you stole? Lol. Yes there is a wire that will have to connect to your button, the button looks like an M&M. It attaches to the left side of your steering wheel, to the right of the headlight turn-knob.

You'll definitly have to run & attach wires, as for what color, I'm not sure, as mine came factory [as far as I know] with it

Try to go to Bimmerforums.com - N do a search on the American Bimmerforums for the e36 fogs. Unfortunately there's not much help here, so try there aswell! Or google! Sorry I cant help anymore

--*Try to eBay the relay wire for the foggies, it'll show up w/ the color semi-"description" of the wire / how 2 install maybe ... just try anything/everything, cant hurt to try right? Better than nothing.

If all else fails, call BMW dealership, N' get tech support, I did LOL.
