    My e87 (es model) i have got the switch working and the light on dash comes
    On but I'm not sure we're to plug the actual fog wiring into

    Ok,the yellow and brown wire from the left foglight goes to pin 37 on the footwell module and the yellow and brown wire from the right foglight goes to pin 3 on the footwell module.
    The trouble is that each foglight wire is going in to a 51 pin connector and there is two 51 pin connectors on the module so you need to get the right ones.
    For the right foglight the correct 51 pin connector will have a brown wire in pin 47 and for the left foglight the other 51 pin connector will have a brown wire in pin 33.
    The earth wires for both foglights go into a black plastic thingy with all brown wires going into it and there is one on each side of the engine bay near the suspension turrets behind the headlights.
    The yellow and brown wires are the live and brown is earth.Im not sure where the footwell module is but its either near the steering column or somewhere around the glovebox area.
