Headlights are more about left/right hand drive than Euro or US spec; the dipped beam needs to favor the off-driver's side to the curb.

No Jimmy,I mean yes they have fog, but the US dont have it as a regulation to have fog lights at the rear, so BMW didnt fit them......basically where the fog bulb goes is empty with no wiring to it....

The Australian market is large enough that some specs may be specific to Australia. However, when in doubt, anything outside the US/Canada will be closer to Euro spec.

Marti, as usual you are 100% correct. The car does has two fog lights at the rear.
