435i sport with Lighting Package - LED fogs?

As per thread topic - does anyone know if the Sport line with LED Lighting Package features LED fog lights as specified on the BMW world site?

Don't know for sure, but I wouldn't count on it. The standard spec according to the USA Website is "Halogen free-form front foglights (not available with M Sport)" and there's no mention of an LED foglight upgrade under the Sport Pkg nor the Lighting Pkg.

Fogs on f32s with the LED headlights are distinctly different than the ones that accompany the xenons. I am going to go with they are also LED with the upgraded lighting package.

Thanks for replying (also thanks to bikenski). The only slight clue I've found so far is on the build configurator on bmwusa.com - if you add the Lighting Package, you can see in the preview image the appearance of the fog lights changes. It looks like a reflector with the horizontal bar across it, just like the LED headlamps.

Anyway, maybe I'll post a pic here once I get the car, that will confirm it once and for all.

It just finished production in the past few days. I'm hoping for last week of May or first week of June. Going by your signature might be the same time as yours?

Yes, mine just finished production also. Maybe we will ride the same ship together. I have a June 2nd date to pick it at the Performance Center.

You might end up beating me since you're on the East coast. All depends on which voyage the cars end up on. Something to keep me occupied while I wait

True....would definitely beat you if I was picking it up at the dealer in Jersey...takes a little longer to get it to the PC in South Carolina...Yea, fun to watch the progress as it makes its journey across the ocean. Where in California are you?

The Ordering Guide is in the sticky on top of the 3/4-Series forum.

5A1 = LED Fog Lights

Either the 4-Series has that code of not. I think that you will be able to find out by yourself.

I'm in San Francisco, which I think adds a day or two compared to LA.

Hmm well that code does not appear on my VIR. Let's hope the ordering guide is wrong on this one.

I emailed my CA before I left for London and he confirmed that code didn't appear on mine either. I told him for the price of the package it should have been.

Hopefully won't be delayed anywhere in route.

So arrived yesterday at Heathrow. Had a limo service meet us. We go to the garage and parked across from his van is a sweet looking Alpine 435 right hand drive.

As it turns out my car is now on Dorado Leader which is due to arrive at Port Hueneme on May 9th! Far quicker than I ever hoped for.

I was able to find this breakdown but it does not mention much regarding fog lamps. I would think it would have been mentioned if it was different

Did you say anything to your CA about them when you ordered car? A previous post indicated Code 5A1 needed to be specified. My CA SAID my VIR did not include it. Wonder if they are part of the lightening package now? Anyone take recent delivery who can confirm?

My 435i was built in mid-December with the LED lighting package. The fog lights match the headlights, so I assume they use either LED (they're definitely not halogen) or Xenon bulbs.

An update on new car deliveries from Bimmerheaven: The Easter holiday in Germany may have delayed shipments by about a week to ten days. My CA in New Jersey told me that they are still waiting for cars that came out of production at the end of March. Mine came out on 4/5 and three ships have come and gone already...mine was not on any of them. Hoping to hop on the Fedora once she gets into port on the 29th. We'll see.
