I bought one for $300 or so last year off ebay from some company I cant remember and they refunded my money since they couldn't produce one.

Seems they are getting rare.

OB. What year did you do your rear fog retrofit ?
Only asking same mod on my end, I don't have the *led* light to the left of ~auto~ on your light switch. Unless, you say it was not OE and it was a mod in itself ?

I did my retrofit last year.

LED indicator is for adaptive headlights which my X5 has. I ordered the switch with the rear fog button from Latvia fleaBay seller that had the LED indicator but you can get them both ways (with or without). This is the thread I used when retrofitting the rear fog lights. It is missing some pictures on the first page but it is 25 pages so you will find more toward the end.

A special shout-out to avonside, mrtm2008, TerminatorX5 and Ricky Bobby for paving this trail.

Yeah, I guess I was a little late to the party. I didn't start modding my X until 2016.

Not sure I follow. Valve stem caps are the least of interest to me...

Hi OP, how are those Yonaka exhaust tips?
I have seen them on ebay and was wondering how their quality is.

Did they bolt on right up without any major adjustments?
(Of course after taking off the original drool tips)
