    Was thinking of wiring up some 5w bulbs into the fogs and having them as drl's (but also keeping the fog lights) any thoughts? Also did the e36 have drl's for foreign markets? If yes where were they placed?

    Something about the height mate (50cm off the floor IIRC?) so they'd still be classed as foglights. but your idea sounds good, doubt they'd be bright enough...

    The pic you posted up is the full foggys on. I'd put side markers in the bumper trim in orange would look cool but depends on the theme your going with the car

    the indicators are side markers/running lights as well.

    I like the look but would that be legal over here?
