Kind of a follow up to my last post about headlights:

My 328is switches the fogs off when I flip on the highbeams. I there an easy way to override that? Also, how can I adjust the fogs so they're aimed higher? Any advice or links would be helpful.

Thanks in advance!

Don't know how to turn all the lights on at the same time but like to know thou
cause I've got lows and fog HID so I don't want to flash my highs on and off too much of that mite burn them fogs out, some times when I really need to flash I just baby sit the horn.
To adjust the fogs you need to pop the lights out so you can adjust the bracket.

the easiest way to have the fogs on all the time or just in parking light on times is to find the wire that sends the 12v signal to the remote side of the fog light relay. and rewire it to the parking light circuit (for fogs with parking lights only) or rewire it to a source that has power only in the run key position such as the power window circuit. i have done this ona few of my cars but have not done it to my 328 yet.

i have a manual that will give me the info to do this, i can post it up at another time if anyone would like it.

Someone did it to my car. I dont have a foglight switch anymore, they are hardwired into the lowbeam power source I think. I noticed it when I changed my bulbs awhile ago.
