White foglights are "me too" lights. I put yellow bulbs in my Maxima's foglights. Very functional. Actually looks kind of cool too if you're concerned about that. Hella Yellow Star 85w H3's are great! (not sure if the BMW fogs can take 85w, the maxima's can..).

Are the Bimmers' fogs H3's? --Andi

: You are correct on the fog/xenon issue. I really do not think that BMW will change the front grill for a while. On the E36 body, the 92 through 93 models had a different airdam. Then in 95 BMW changed the front airdam to look more sylish. But I do remember that the foglights were lower on all E36 years, regardless of the airdam redesign. There must a reason they raised them, but does ANYONE know?

: If you are going to put yellow lights on the E46 foglights, they will look very funny on the car. Yes, the yellow frequency is ideal for fog conditions, but now days, not too many carmakers (other than Lexus maybe) are willing to put them on as standard equipment.

: My $0.02.
