No fogs on US M-Sport

Anyone know why the US doesn't get the fog lights. My US window sticker actually calls them out as standard and I don't have them on my 335xi M-Sport. How about a refund?

Best guess is that they remove the fogs to provide more airflow.

Good luck getting a refund, no M-Sport in the US has those standard.

Is it really worth the hassle of trying to get a refund over some fog lights? Will the foglights make or break the deal on the car or make the car THAT much better?

If anything I would just argue for a discount on an accessory.
My car had the M Performance Grill on it when I bought it, but it was not on the window sticker. The dealer realized their mistake and just ate the loss of 300$..

I would't say a simple typo constitutes a refund, especially on fog lights. Just tell them you want 250$ off the cost of the power pack

On my e90, the dealer did an oil change and reused the old crush ring, so my car leaked oil all the way home and I ended up having to add 2 quarts to it. I was pissed, the dealer almost destroyed my engine. They fixed it, and I told them I wanted a deal on a perf. exhaust and they offered me 20% off (about 250$). I say go this route.

Maybe if they had told you it was 340 HP and it ended up being 300 HP or something epic THEN I would ask for a refund.

It is well known in the USA M Sports do not come with fogs, there have been numerous threads on it.

Has anyone tried installing LED driving lights on the M Sport?

Its called infinite wisdom of BMWNA. Same reason why we are still waiting for the NBT Nav upgrade. aka "Irrational exuberance".

Struck me as funny too when I was ordering, considering my first google searches showed it with the lights. But when you get eyes on, you see that they open up the whole fog light area to a vent w/ filter that goes toward the wheel well. They say it's their 'arid weather style' or something to that effect. I guess their view of America is only California and Arizona...

But it's actually grown on me. When I see the euro version and the panel next to the light is just filled in plastic, it looks kinda cheap to me. I'd like to see some summer brake performance tests though to see if it really makes any difference.
