I mean bulb(miss spell, sorry), I try to use the flat screwdriver to get the foglight out but I can't, because is an different bumper, the m3 bumper has the air dam right next to the fog light, so I can't use the flat screwdriver to release the foglight retaining clip like the original bumper to get the foglight out, I don't know if the m3 bumper has the retaining clip like the original bumper but I try and try and I just can't get the foglight out.

there should be a little hole right beside the foglight in the air duct thing which you insert the screwdriver in.

I try that already and got no luck, I really don't know what to do with my foglight and I really don't want go to the dealer to fix cause I got so many problem in my bimmer, if I go to the dealer they will fix everything and I have to pay mad money( I am pretty much broke)my OBC has problem, the foglight, the fen( one piece is broking but the car still runs so...) I am start to think maybe I will give up my beloved bimmer and go back to the lexus.

thanks for all your help guys
I appreciated.

you have three minor problems and your going to sell? OBC is just showing the normal fault which can be repaired for 8$...since your fan has one piece missing you can do the fan delete mod and gain 5hp or just replace it for not a whole lot of money. fog lights are cheap as well and if you just whip out the flashlight and a screwdriver and spend an honest amount of time trying to remove them. plus you can just upgrade them instead of replacing them.

how do I upgrade the foglight? I can't even get the foglight out, and how do you upgrade the fen again? can you tell me more on the fen, it sounds interesting that I can gain 5hp for that.

here is the website with the fan delete mod

in the middle of the page theres a section that says tech write ups/ how-tos, under that click on the link that says how to do the famous fan delete mod. it costs under $100 to do.

this tells about how to upgrade your fog lights and how to uninstall them as well
