Looking for a good set of fog lights. No chips or scratches. I will accept some pitting as it is inevitable these days to have a perfect set of OEM fogs, but I am looking for a set that still has clarity and no major damage.

TIA

I do in fact only need one. My passenger fog broke but I figured I would only find them for sale in pairs. Let me know if you are willing to sell the one.

Think I have a used pair also, have pitting, but seen where some had good results sanding/buffing. New ones aren't too expensive from BMW.

Yes I may consider buying new, but at roughly $110 new, and the fact that I seem to break them once every 12-18 months, it could add up. I need to start a fog light hoard for reserves :)

I also should mention that I am looking for clear fogs and not the fluted ones.

Yes it is. In most traffic conditions I keep a healthy distance mainly to prevent chips on the bumper from flying debris from traffic ahead, but in some traffic scenarios (at least here in SoCal), you squeeze into the herd while traveling at the same speed and you end up surrounded by vehicles and at certain times are not able to have an out. But in this case, the object came flying across the lanes and there was no time to react really even if I did have room in the next lane.

I notice this happens more (chips and damaged fogs) now that the car is lower than before (now on coil overs vs lowering springs). May be time to raise it up a little.
