Question Quick Q for facelift Touring owners

I was driving behind a facelift xiT for a bit during today's Fest road rally and noticed something and just want a verification.

Even though wagons didn't get facelift lights in back, it appears to have gotten facelifted bulb config: lights on= all 3 lights/side on dimly. Brakes on= same 3 lights on bright. 3 meaning 2 under the turn signal and 1 under the reverse light.

Mine only lights the 2 outboards dimly and the brake only lights the outermost one bright. Nothing is lit under the reverse unless rear fogs are installed.

If this is in fact correct, my rear foglight retrofit will NOT work on facelift sedans, and I'll have to change my instructions. Oh, and I was informed today that at least on one 328i sedan, the rear fog bulb sockets are already there from the factory...

I'll tell you in another month. We're set to pick up our 325iT in Munich on 5/13. I just signed away my first born at the dealership yesterday, but I can't help from feeling . More importantly, my wife feels the same way.

With the ignition on, it looks like only the two outboard lights are on when the lights are turned on. I couldn't check the brakes (and I can't remember what I've seen in window reflections, etc). I will check this later today and get back to you.
