    what you need is this pdf file see below i would think the e46 and 36 are similiar job but loom wise would be different.
    this is what an e36 loom looks likeloom.jpg

    there is a plug on the end of the loom this lives in the fusebox where it plugs into a socket.
    red is the main feed there are two wires yell/brown red yellow these are for the fuse.
    the m6 lug is the negative bolted to the chassis.
    fitted front fogs to my e36 two weeks ago took 3hrs quit easy.

    how much different it would be for a e46 dont know but can send you a private link to my thread as its on another forum.

    the pic is for an e36 car by the way and for comaparison purposes only.

    There's an alternative. There's always a third way, and it's not a combination of the other two ways. It's a different way

    I see you've made you're decision now lets see you enforce it.
