You can still get the Bosch rectangular fog lamps that were an OEM option on
the 200 and 700 series, they're not even terribly expensive.
Under the bumper gives significantly better performance, and you want them
as far to each side as possible, but they are more prone to breakage. I put
the IPD protectors on my 740's fog lights and haven't broken one since.
