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.
