I just got M3, and when I turn on the lights, the two rear red lights under the reverse lights (on the trunk) don't light up. I called my dealer, and he said they're only reflectors. Is he kidding me? Or there are supposed to be 4 rear red lights (2 on the trunk and 2 at side, under the signal lights) that are on?
Please help guys...this really blows my mind if they're only reflectors...:dunno:

Thanks for the reply.
Yeah, I looked at them. No bulbs there. Man, it looks nicer if they're not reflectors tho...

They're actually rear foglight housings. I haven't heard the latest from the people trying to retrofit rear foglights, but if I remember right, the car isn't prewired for it, you need the bulb holders, switch, and probably some type of controller.

You can get replacements for them that are painted to match your car. Check out Bimmian.com. They are around $50.
