So, for the current F10 in the US, the light control panel should look like this

I did so many researches on the internet globally and finally I found this used part from UK.
Then I got it today and swapped the original one. After the easy modification, the control panel looks like this.

On the dashboard, when I turn on the rear fog light, it will show the indicator that I never see before, which is the rear fog light

And, you can definitely see the "light" on the back!

I think this is a easy modification cause it is not programming required, just plug and play! Hope this is helpful for everyone!
Thank you for posting the video, I had the old switch out and the new switch in very quickly. The whole process took all of about 10 minutes.
