    Posted: 22 Nov 2021 at 4:47pm
Finally decided to upgrade the fog lights after one of the original/factory fog light cover flew off while driving down the A1. I was aware of the plastic mount (clip) was loose but decided to just slap on some UHU glue which obviously did not work.
Anyway, I have been doing some research and would appreciate some info with the following:
1) The K8 relay - what is the part number? Is it still possible to get it? I have tried inquiring a local BMW retailer/dealer and was surprised they could not be of much help. If it is no longer in production, then what is the equivalent alternative eg. BOSCH etc and where can I buy from?

2) Switch - currently it is the single button (long bar). Would it be possible to somehow modify it to operate either:
(a) have both front and rear fog lights switched on when pressed, or
(b) disable the function for the rear fog lights and instead use it for the front - which I am intending to install.
[seems like the dual switch fog lights is hard to come by as I have checked with a number of BMW dismantler / breakers for a while and nothing has come up yet]

3) The fitting / mounting / clip - As mentioned earlier, the old fog light cover came flew off because the old plastic and I just cannot find the same type in shops. I have seen some that resembles close to it on Amazon UK but cannot be sure if it actually going to fit. Plus it is from some seller in China so am not going to waste time getting it from all the way there only to find it will not fit. I can only describe it that it looks like a 4-cornered pyramid/square stud and it goes through the hole of the fog light cover. Any idea where i can get some in the UK?

Many thanks

Have you looked on realoem.com ? You can find all the part numbers there, and then go to BMW or ebay etc to try to find a source.
