    So I have a facelift 2003 318i with the round fog light plastic covers. I wanted to ask if I wanted to retrofit fog lights, is the connector for it there? Is it even possible? I have a fog light compatible lsz, but if I bought the fog lights, would it just be plug and play?

    First of all, I am not a native English speaker so apologies for any mistakes and weird wording. I didn't find a well documented process of fitting a facelift hood on a pre-facelift sedan, so I decided to do it myself. And I don't mean facelifting the front. Changing only the hood and leaving...
