Most BMWs, including the 6 series, have a receptacle in the floor under the carpet near the seat for T-lock pins to anchor the floor mats.

If you search realOEM for the 645Ci fog light part number, it shows the same part is used on the 650i/645Ci(both coupe and cab)/E60/E90/E83. It will probably fit.

For starters I don't think it's a fuse. A fuse is like an on/off switch so the intermittent sound rules out a fuse.

To me this sounds like a battery or alternator issue, or maybe a problem with...

I highly doubt a 7 series bar will work on a 6er. The bars are a very precise fit. Sometimes you need to jack up the car on one side to get a bar on, even when it's designed for the car.
