Rear fog lights

So I have made the rear fogs on my previous e46, and e90. I took apart the housing and all, but it doesn't seem to have rear fogs...am I krazy, doing something wrong, does f30 not have it??? I saw LTMW and he did it on a 5er.

I know it comes on the Euro spec, least it has it on the euro switch... I wonder if its a setting within the system that could enable it and it's integrated into another part of the light?

The rear fogs use the inner break lights(the ones on your trunk)
so you do have it
just need a switch to turn it on

Yes. But if I took apart the housing and manually pressed the button for the light switch, ( I pressed every option on the mother board and no lights on....

It's probably the same fix as the X1. When you open the housing you need to cut the little pins that's holding the fake rear fog button. This will allow it to move freely like the front fog button.

I did that and it didn't work.
