Default Re: POST-FACELIFT E46 Coupe Fog Light Install/Swap

I thought the only difference from the prefacelift-facelift was the corner markers. They face down on our M3's but face up on the face lifted versions... Anyone confirm?

The M3 never really got a post face lift. It was all pre-face lift style with the exception that they changed the mounting type. Clip in vs screw in.

All E46 M3 fog lights are the same.


Non M3 fogs differ depending on year etc.

This thread is really old...

But anyway, contrary to popular belief, there was a change in E46 M3 fog design
The older models had completely crystal clear lenses while the newer models had "fluted" or cloudy lenses with vertical lines...

Don't believe me go look, if your car or the car you are researching doesn't match, they were probably replaced with the wrong ones

Lmao I love finding your own old posts. Usually when you're replying to an old thread and don't recognize your writing and are about to flame yourself...
