Fog lamp replacement on 2013 M3 SkyActiv HB - easiest way to change?

Hello everyone,

I bought a pair of LED fog lamps from Corksport and would like to know:

What is the easiest way to install them?

I see some people mention taking off the bumper, others say back the car up and take off splash guards. I'm just looking for the simplest way to change them with the least amount of effort since taking apart a brand new makes me cringe.

Best regards,
Trem

Are you installing the whole assembly yourself or just replacing the bulbs? On the 2013's there are plastic plates below the bumper on each side that are held in by 3 screws. Removing these should give you access to replace the bulbs. Look on page 8-48 of the owner's manual for more details. If you are installing the whole assembly, I would guess that you have to remove the bumper, but I'm not totally sure.

I am just looking to change the bulbs. I will look at the manual and give this a shot.

Thank you for the reply and I'll post my results shortly.

Best regards,
