how do you wire the high beams so that the fog lights stay on while the high beam are on, so all 6 lights are on at once? I saw a diagram somewhere on the net a long time ago, so I know it can be done. thanks

It can be done but, you will be braking the law.

I wouldn't do it and leave the high beams on all the time, it would mearly be cosmetic for taking photos and such. I think the newer cars (E36 + E39) look really cool when they have all six lights on in photos. that's not breaking the law. So how can it be done?

If as with most European cars, that have a "flash to pass" function" all the lights come on when you pull back the turn signal lever, Find the wire that goes to the fog lamp relay and jump it with an auxillary switch. But remember this is illegal and doesn't make any sense. Alternatively, you could bypass the relay on the high beams that prevent the fog from being turned on.
