    Aftermarket knock off oem style fog lights

    Hey building up my next e30 project and bought a set of aftermarket oem style fog lamps during a bundle buy months ago. Now that I am in the final stages of putting the car back together I am noticing that the back of the fog lamp plugs are a mirror design to the factory plug. By that I mean it won’t fit because it looks like the mold for the fogs were not “flipped” correctly. Has anyone else come across this? For now I de pinned my oem pigtails and plugged the wires to the ports directly to assure they work. In theory I could just “fill with silicone” to “seal” for now but I’d rather do it the right way and can’t find oem fogs at the moment.

    Does your plug look like this?



    BMW has several different versions that are "keyed" differently for different applications. Maybe there is one that fits your aftermarket fogs?

    If your car is 87 or later, it should have this style plug.

    They are color coded for the different shapes. Here are several:

    I think there is a blue as well, but can't seem to find it.
