Third Group Buy: Light control switches that enable our car's Rear Fog Lights

This switch is a form, fit, enhanced function plug and play replacement for our North American cars' fog light and headlight control switch which has the added button to enable our car's built-in rear fog lights. The rear fog lights are brighter cells on the inboard section of the brake lights. Our cars are already wired for the rear fog light control, and you also already have the rear fog light indicator in your instrument cluster.

This is the thread in which the first switch group buy took place:
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...71#post7875871

and this is the second:
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=725940

Please look at the ends of these threads for pictures of car's with the switches installed.

I'm accepting payment now for the switches on a first-come, first-served list. I'll ship them all at one time within a few hours of receiving the switches. These switches, just like the first and second batches, are USED but are from cars which never made it to a customer. Their use was minimal, if at all, and they are all in excellent cosmetic and perfect functional condition.

The cost will be the same as the last times; $75 for local, $85 for USPS, or $95 for Canadian Post. If you buy multiple switches and need them shipped, you will pay the shipping cost on only one switch, all others will be $75.

Please PM me and I'll reply with payment information.

According to RealOEM.com, these are the cars that the switches work in. If you can find your car on this list, the switch will fit in your car as a form, fit, enhanced function replacement (no coding needed). Several LCI owners have installed this switch in their car and report that it works.

Part 61319192744 (Control element light) was found on the following vehicles:

F01, F01N, F02, F02N, F03, F03N, F04, F06, F07, F10, F11, F12, F13, F18, and F25

That video is not from Texas. It was an example of why rear fog lights are useful. Unless you are referring to my funny looking car

No...sorry...my attempt at humor flopped...I know that the video is from Europe, and your car is certainly not funny. Being a Native Californian, I always try to poke fun at Texas...for no reason that I can remember right now! It's the blond in me...

jweek paid 10/24

Shipment status:

The witches (pun intended, wait for it, wait for it...) will be shipped on the 31st (get it?).

With my wildly innacurate shipping transit estimates from the first and second group buys, I offer this estimated date of arrival, of the switches at my home, for humor puposes only.

The switches will be at my home on November 8th and I'll ship them out to you on the 8th or 9th. This time, they probably WILL get here when I estimate that they will.
