Hi pardon my ignorance.
is knowing that my boyfriend has a BMW 3 series, (four door) enough to know, to buy a decent set of fog lights. Do not know what year or model. His headlights are very bright as everyone flashes us when he drives. I would like to get a quality set, is this possible? How much should I expect to pay, and what is too low or too much to spend?
Heres a photo, if that helps.
Thanks!

Do you

Well honestly I would not know how much a set of fog lights is going to cost. eBay has a pretty wide range from $45.00 for one up to about $100.00. That does not include mounting hardware, a switch, or the labor to install them.

I would, instead, suggest getting the regular headlights adjusted. If they are aimed too high, then they can be very bright for oncoming drivers, making them think that those are the high beam lights. Just about anyone can adjust headlight aim. It is really simple. Here is a decent how-to video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPorfHYprRI

Try that and see if it helps.
