Cool M3 Fogs Removal (newbie question)

Do you need to access the fog lights from the back by pulling the fender liners away in the wheel wells or can they be taken out or adjusted from the front of the car??? I just got the replacement projectors from Bavarian bc the OE fogs don't lite the curbs up at night (like fogs should) for shizz, so wondering what is involved in replacing the them.

Thanks in advance.

if it's anything like the non-Ms (which i'm almost sure it is) all you need is the screwdriver from the trunk and everything is done from the front of the car

edit: you might have screws or 8-mm bolt heads to deal with.

The little plastic covers just snap in. Pull them out from the side closer to the center grill first. The covers sort of unclip. Then there is one screw on each fog light. It's usually an 8mm and is sometimes a phillips head.
