This is a two part question.

I have a 248 package, so it doesn't have fogs.

But Upon inspection of my light harness, I found the plugs.
I also plan to repin the wires to allow Fogs with only parking lights.
So, my question:
What ALL do I need to wire them in?
I know I will need the actual fog lights, bulbs and switch to replace one of the coin holders.
Anything else? Fuses or relays?

Second part:
I want white LED foglights.
Not good for seeing, but they are visually pleasing.

So my question, anyone have them?
Know a good place to order, and what size?
Last question, do I need a resistor or anything?

Thanks!!

Yes you need a relay under the hood. I am not sure if its specialized or not if you want I can pull it out of my parts car.

I have 35w HIDs in my fogs, there were no good affordable LED options back when I got them. If you don't want a lot of light out of them LEDs should give you the look you want.

Yeah, fogs aren't really for lighting up the road anyway. But LEDs do look good, early morning or early evening.
You said a relay?
I just saw LRS has the whole setup for $154. Minus bulbs.
I may go with that.

TTocs, is that a relay for the fuse box like the other relays or is it elsewhere, because I would have to look, but unless it controls other functions, I doubt I'd have it.

I've found fog lights helpful when It rains. Usually headlight beams are absorbed by the water on the road but the fogs sort of help over come that.

If you have a cobra bumper. TRS has a set of BMW LED fogs that fits perfectly in the bumper.
