I have been doing some reading on this and I think for most of the G series, rear fog light and European spec tail light days are over.

My understanding is that US spec cars have different wiring and different hardware in some cases.

For example US spec G20 have completely different rear tail light assemblies along with a different wiring.

I sure hope someone proves me wrong. I hate not having rear fogs and red turn signals that flash with brake lights due to some non-sense DOT regulations.

G30 have the same wiring in US and ECE cars.
On other forum I found information that easiest way to program US car to ECE is to code the whole car (except ACSM and DME) with ece typeshlussel.

I will try it on weekend.
The only issue with this is that SZL will give the error: wrong variant installed
