Thumbs Up Sedan Sport Package Fogs

For those of us sedan owners who have the sport package front bumper probably already know that our fogs are a pain in the ass to find!

The fogs which are sold for the Mtech II and M3 most def. DO NOT fit our bumper! The M3's and Mtech II fogs have a flared out design towards the rear of the housing (last pic highlighted in red), and this will not allow you to install them in the sport bumper (Mtech I) I'm pretty sure they have different part numbers too.

So instead of paying stealership prices of almost $200 for the sedan's sport set, I searched for a long ass time and finally found an odd listing on ebay I know we frown upon it but I figured what the hell do I have to lose at $77 shipped?
I was completely shocked with the quality of them, they look almost exactly the same as my OEM set and they fit PERFECT, notice how there is no flare towards the end of the housing. The light pattern is exactly like my old oem set too.

The seller shipped them out pretty damn fast and they were packaged well, so I have to recommend these to anyone whom has the Mtech I bumper on their sedan The only drawback is that the lense is not glass like oem, its acrylic but I could care less for my fogs, throw some lamin-x on them and its all the same! Now all I need is an HID retro-kit for them

The ebay item # is 160231188624
