^I'm down!

Their website seems to be down and when doing a quick search for TMTuning on google, they have some horrific feedback. Can we get these LED's from a different company for peace of mind?

There are (as far as I know) two other places in the US sell them.
One of the two is ...

https://lightwurkz.com/DRL.html

The 90mm LED fog light version is now available in US (actually was available in the Spring 2012 over @ Europe). Note: If you have Msport, then the 90mm is the perfect fit, the 70mm will end up leaving a bit of opening gap in the stock fog light housing. Their website is not updated for the 90mm availability. Call them up !

The 'fog' light version is the one that you should order ... has a much better beam pattern over the 'DRL' and the 'High beam' version. Same housing but the focus beam is different. The LED is made by Osram and the entire unit is Made in Germany ... No Made in China crappy stuff !

Don't have any pics, but just changed to xenon match bulbs on my m-sport.

There are clips going round the sides of the mesh.
I found the best way, was to start pulling it carefully out from the bottom outer corner, and slowly work my way around pulling evenly on each clip.

Broke some of the clips on the first one, but was more carefull to feel for the resistance from the clips as I went forward on the other one. No damage to this one... On my car, there were plastic blinds behind the mesh. They "fall out" when you remove the mesh....

I used a "special tool", but it's just a 90degree hook with a handle really. So you can lurke it behind the mesh a pull where it's most rigid.
Remember, there's a clip on top of the foglight you need to loosen in addition to the to srews in front. You can reach it from the inside of the bumper.

Just installed my HID fog today, and thought I would share some pictures!
I purchased a Canbus kit, and so far so good, no flickering, no error message.
I first followed my E90 DIY and removed the wheel and wheel liner, and found out the passenger side has no room to work with. see first picture


Then like others have suggested, pull the front lower grill by using a hook or similar.
Passenger side:

Driver side:




Passenger side installed.

I emailed them and they only have 1 yr warranty. Morimoto has a 5 yr warranty and is proven. So for a price difference of $21, I went with Morimoto.

Please refer to the rear view of the fog light on the top half of the picture on post #6.

When looking at the bottom left of the rear of the fog light notice the notched gear. Do you adjust the level of the beam by turning this?

As I pull into my garage and look at the fog beam on the wall (about 5 feet from wall) the beam mark on the wall is lower on one side compared to the fog beam on the other side of the car.

I believe that's the gear used to level off the beam pattern.

question on removing the M sport fog. I was able to get the grill out and unscrew the 2 bottom screws but the fogs seem to be attached to something else. I can't just pull it, and I am afraid to just force it as I may break something. How do you remove the fog from here? I am trying to install HIDs...

Figured it out...Actually, no need to remove the fog lamp. The bulb just twists off and then replaced with HID and hook up the ballast, etc. Morimoto 5000K pretty much is the same color as the angel eyes. Highly recommended!
