I don't recommend doing it. The lcm is not meant for xenon bulbs in fog lights and it will blind everyone. It probably will work less in the fog due to the light output pattern from a xenon bulb in a halogen housing.

I did this to my 330Ci vert. Put in 55W HIDs, with a DDM Tuning kit, and it's great. Just stay with a lower colour temperature so they're functional ie; 3000-4300K.
