Lightbulb LED Fog Lights Possible?

I'm sure I can find the answer to this question out there somewhere, but I figured this might be easier and quicker.

Does anyone know if the standard/stock bulbs for the fog lights on a 2011 328 Convertible can be changed to LED Bulbs and where I can find them? Every other light on my car is LED except the fog lights and I'm not sure of the reason.

Any info or ideas would be much appreciated - thanks all!

CM

Fog lights are designed to throw a "puddle" of light low & close to the front bumper, LEDs are better suited for lights with more "throw", like driving lights. Driving around with fog lights on when it`s not foggy is generally considered to be the domain of 16-year-olds and knuckleheads....

Yeah - that was helpful. Why even waste your time with a dickhead-type of comment?

Sometimes you just can't help yourself.

I live in a rural area that is heavly populated with deer. Fog lights help illuminate the shoulder of the road and give you just a little better chance of seeing Bambi. It apears you may not have all the facts, and yes, I drive with my fog lights on, I have not yet hit a deer, and I suppose that either makes me a 64 year old knucklehead or a smarter driver than those you are so quick to judge.

There are LED fog lights available. Look at e92lighting.com or search for cree automotive led lighting and you'll find them.
