Rear fog lights retrofit for Touring

I have a 2002 325iT which I am told was a European Delivery car. I have easily added rear fogs to my E90's via Euro headlight switches. I have looked at several forums and haven't concluded if there are wires from front to rear in my Touring. Thoughts?

Thanks! I have followed his mods and retrofits for several years, but had forgotten about him. Still unsure about the existence of the wiring.

it does not exist. take it form someone who has done it.
dont forget to buy new bulb carriers also. please dont try to modify/drill and make your own carriers like someone who posted a lot of howtos did, they dont work. get the knockoffs from fcp.
Also buy NEW good 3m electrical tape to re-wrap the harness you have to unwrap for your wiring between the hatch and the glass.

Second for the lack of wiring. I ran it through the elephant trunk when I ran the video cable for my back up cam but still haven't finished the install.

I'm waiting for parts to arrive. I am going with euro tail lights and will be adding rear fog lights. I need to order the headlight switch. I'll have updates and pictures soon.

I'd love to see this! I want to do this to my touring too; as-well as retrofit front fogs since my touring didn't come with any.

Seems like all these EONON units have a terrible fitment in the middle of the DVD/CD Drive, seems like they are all pushed down. Mine is the same. I love the unit though, just bothers me.
