i was going about 60mph on a 2 lane narrow highway and out of nowhere this hubcap comes rolling towards me.....i slam into it because i couldnt swerve or stop....it hits the front of my car goes under it and flies up and hits my girlfriends car who was driving behind me....about 3 miles later she gets next to me and tell me that my foglight is dragging....i pull over and my passenger side fog light is dragging and smashed up. ...nothing happened to her car....i'll post pics when it stops raining.....the light still works though

If the glass is still intact, but some heavy duty clear 3M tape. It will stop water from getting in and hold the lense together.

Mine is broken but the tape holds it together well.

Try eap4parts.com look under "body" then pick your model # . Foglight should run $47 + s/h. I have nothing to do with them. I have to get a foglight from them also, they are about $30 cheaper than other places.

cheaper isnt always better, specially with something like an e36 foglight so easy to break, so a cheaper one might break ever easier than a normal one!

The ones I quoted are and should be the OEM Hellas not knock offs.

i have the euro fogs, i llike them a lot better than the oem, they give more light since they are clear and just the cosmetic fact make the front of the car look a lot better!
