Replacing fog light bulb on X3 M Sport
 
Hi all.

I want to replace my OEM yellowish fog light bulbs with xenon white ones. How do I get access to the fog lights? Can I do this from the front of the M Sport bumper or do i have to take the fender liner out?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. Is this the same process on the E83 sport bumper as well? To be honest, I didn't check if there is a cover around the fog lights on mine. What exactly is the

The thing is, there is no plastic ring around my fog lights since they are enclosed in the small grills. See the photo below. Can the grill be removed?

This may not be exactly the same - but I would think similar - that special tool is just a small ( maybe 1 to 1&1/2 inch wide but thin ) flat plastic trim removal pry tool,

I'll try this today. although i don't have a tool similar to that, I will find something plastic and give it a go. Thanks :)
