No, the new M3, like the new M6, doesn't have fog lights. The e46 M3 did. In the e92's....or e90's is it? It's just the intake and vents. They're probably the integrated style like the '05 Acura TL's. Problem is, people like that quad lighting look.

No. The new M3 does not have fog lights. The reasoning was due the sheer volume of air needed to power the new engine. It was the same reason they were left off of the M5/M6.

guess there is no button for the fog lights, the brochure pics show differently (sorry for using someone elses pic, needed a reference)
If you look next to the light control knob, you can see the Fog light button illuminated.

Weird how the first one with the illuminated fog light doesn't have the logo for the fog lights, but the second one does .... It has a weird gauge cluster though. Maybe it's different for European models with KM?

I believe the Euro model in its early stages did have fog lights, and they later decided to ditch the idea entirely..

Yes, euro-regulations do require those.
Looking at the euro pics of the interior, i think there are also fogs on the front(headlight button looks like it can be pulled out --> fogs?). Probably integrated in the headlights.

That's what I think too, on all the cars I've been in, pulling on the switch lights up integrated fogs, while a button usually switches stand alone lights.

Test drove an E92 M3 a couple of months back - rear fogs only in the UK.
