When the weather improves I'll be pulling my tailamp fixture to look for a tab on my 08 535xi Otherwise I'm gonna have to fiqure......
Well, when you figure out where to attach the additional ground on the fixture, let us know I'm not randomly attaching it to any points on the light fixture and running the risk of shorting something out without knowing for sure the ground point is correct.
Your fixture is just like mine, so good luck finding that grounding tab...
