F32 LED Fog Lights

Time to make the switch! I know most of the info is out there if i reseach but i rather hear your thoughts and experience.

I'm looking to switch my ugly cornering amber fog lights with LEDs that would be on all all the time. Looks like i always have one burnt when i see my car reflection. Here are a few questions:

- H11 is the right model correct?
- Do they require an adpadter harness or are they plug and play?
- I used VLEDs in the past and found that they are great, do you guys recommend any better ones? I'm think this speciifc model, although they are pricey, they are 3500 lumen 6k:

- If i switch to the M front bumper later on, will i be able to keep them? I havent seen any M front bumpers with fogs... ?
- I've heard having fog lights on is illegal (Canada)... although i think its like having your windows tinted, no one gives a F unless you abuse it. Thoughts?
- Coding required? Yes and i have what it takes for that
- Any other tips/tricks based on your experience?

Thanks!
Mazen

I'd get these:

They're as close as I can find to what I've been running for four years.

Thanks, is it normal Amazon tells me they won't fit?

I have a 2014 435i

Amazon gets it wrong all the time. If you've confirmed that your current bulbs are H8/H9/H11 base halogens they should fit. As I recall mine needed a slight bit of work on the bulb flange with a Dremel tool, nothing at all difficult.

Cougar Motor H11 LED bulbs work and look great in my F30. Just installed them and coded for "LED Conversion" via Bimmercode. No other resistors needed, no flickering, and no modifications needed to the bulb. And, they are fanless which I prefer as there is less to fail.
