hey guys i am trying to get fog lights in my m6 bumper and i have no clue where to put it. I need it cause i live in a Canyon where there is no street lights or anything so at night its pure darkness. I dont want to miss anything on the road especially at night. i was hoping you guys can help me with some of your ideas! Some of my ideas are to put a circle fog lights where the mesh grill is. Nice big circle WRX style.. idk so what do you guys think? Also if anyone is good in photoshop maybe you can photoshop me a picture of a m6 front with fog lights?

That's a bad idea imo because you'd have to cut the bumper and to make it clean it would probably me expensive and finding the right place etc. Plus it would look prettty bad. If you don't like the fog lights you should return the M6 bumper. Just my two cents

Why do you want to mess up the M6 look? Forget the fogs and get some HID high beams, IMO

theXman is on the money.

The M6 look is beautiful.

you need fog lights for that

BTW what is wrong with a man wanting to fit some damned fog lights onto his vehicle? I say, if you wanna do a bull bar with 4 rallye-style lights - it is all good. But I'd suggest something very subtle and stealth. How deep can you mount fogs in those openings? Just get little rectangular or oval fog lights that you can hide completely. Worst case - do what did on my first car - put the fogs behind the grille

I hope this is reverse psychology. You don't want to mess up the M6 look.

But that is Audi and MB. Be original, don't copycat.
