My Ride: 2004 330i ZHP
Any reasonable cost, good quality OEM replacement fog lights for ZHP?


I recently bought an '04 330i ZHP and noticed the right side fog light was fitting loosely in the trim ring, and it also appears to be an aftermarket light (doesn't match the left side - right has perfectly clear/transparent lens, left has vertical striped 'ripple' pattern glass lens). Upon removal, I found the tabs on its housing that key into the bumper opposite the mounting screw were broken off and missing, causing the looseness. Rather than having it flop around and risk breaking the screw mount, too, I'd like to replace the fog light. Best price I found on line for a BMW OEM fog light is $90 + S/H. Considering it's unlikely I'll ever even turn the fog lights on, it really seems silly to spend $100+ on a replacement light. I checked eBay and found several different brands of lower cost aftermarket fog light kits, but I don't want to buy a lower cost replacement just to find out later that it's junk.

So, can you guys recommend any aftermarket fog light options that are decent quality for relatively low cost? Or, any source for a right side BMW OEM fog light for a low price? Thanks!

Both types at that link are 'ripple-free' lens type, which does not match my good/left side OEM 'ripple' type lens. So a matching pair of those would cost more than one OEM right side light.

Any other options?
