Some of the wiring is there on the 13s that was not there on the 12s, but for the 2012 without fog lamps they had to resort to wiring in an alternate switch and basically building their own mirrored lighting control box so as to not risk damaging the body control module.
It was covered here: Fog Light Installation - S Model (with Pics)
for the 2012

Hmm, my dealer (a friend I went to school with) said they just added them to a stock SE similar to mine, 2013, and was successful. May let them try on mine, just to dodge the hassle. I don't have the time or equipment to start ripping stuff apart.
Figure, if they can't do it, he won't charge me.
How much cheaper is the aftermarket? My dealer will put anything I take him in, if they know how to do it. So, if it is worth it, I may just pay them labor, while they put my spoiler on next week.
