You could buy some fog light blanks $22 each from bmw.. then cut out some circles and mount eurolites in them.

are you existing ones cracked and pitted. i have a brand new set i would sell. i'm not happy with the way they fit on my M-tech kit so i'm gonna look at my options.

exactly!
Buy the foglight covers, and then with a special drill bit used to cut circular holes (like for door handles on a home door but smaller), cut a hole in the cover, and just have the ellipsoid projector popping out of the hole, but the unit is behind the cover. It looks very sexy (I did this on my current E36 car as I want only ellipsoid lights up front, and because I mounted HID's in the fogs too)

yes, great idea, I was wonderin' how I would mount it but with the light covers that takes care of that really.

Now, what do you recommend for a light? I dont know much about fog lights

I'll try and get some taken, but if not, I will in the future. I'm actually writing up a HOW TO for this mod to put on my website soon.
