change zhp fog lights
 
in the regluar 3 series all you do is pop off the plastic around the fog lights and remove the screws, but on the zhp the screws are backwards. What you do is remove the plastic around the fog lights by pulling on it lightly it jjust pops on and off. then you can stick your hand in the back of the fog light and just pull out the bulb, it is difficult to do but it can be done. i have big hands and i have done it a bunch of times.

I mounted mine ~2 inches above the bottom panel, on the fender liner. I used 3m outdoor waterproof double sided tape and it has held good so far *knock on wood.

EDIT: If you want some pics, I'll take some.

I just pulled away my fender liner and found 2 holes in the front metal bumper bracket and a single hole on the car-side and threaded some plastic zip ties through them and the ballast. Now the ballast sits high up around the top of the bumper completely away from water. Also, no possibility of any tape coming undone. Only thing i've noticed is that my AM reception is reduced when I put on the HIDs. Probably has something to do with the ballast interfering with the antenna which I think is in the bumper... right?
