M550 fog lights

I just bought a 2019 M550 and i and torn about the front bumper not looking aggressive enough for my liking. I also like the look of fog light on my cars
.
I am debating on putting the AC Schlitzer kit on the car or at least the front bumper and definitely changing the rear diffuser to a more aggressive M5 looking style.

My question is has anyone changed any of the body parts yet on there M550 and does anyone know if they make some kind of fog light kit for them at all or know how to modify some of like 540i fog lights into the grills?

Did you ever get it figured out?

I know most of the parts, but I am not sure I've identified 100% of the parts, and I definitely don't know what coding is involved.

I am wondering if BMW had a good reason to leave out the fog lights on the M550. It seems a weird omission unless there was a good reason for it.

It's probably because the two smaller radiators, shown in this parts diagram, are getting air via those grills/inlets. Installing fog lights would block some of that air flow. That being said, the 540iX has one of these remote radiators (second pic), and they have foglights (the sport line version does, in the US).

Based on the trim pieces, it looks like you lose about 1/3 of the air flow.
