Does that mean it can be done with a firmware mod to the BCU? I'd love to have it done if so.

its canot be done, since the relay for the fogs is unservicable since its integrated into the BCM module, if people didnt knew allready. oh and its cnot a feature that can be activated with any scan/IDS tools either, not even with ford IDS scan tool. the only way you could make this work is hack the electrical system and wire your own relay/switch for the fog light so then they would be on all the time (ofc you would have to pick up a "hot in acc. or run" wire so fogs only turn on when ignition is on or running, or else you could risk forgetting them on and drain your battery)

(Im a car technician, I could easily do it if I want to, but that would void the warranty and is not worth the trouble/time/cost that it involve just because you dont have fogs with high beams on.)

You're wrong. I'm sending the guy that has accomplished this to answer the OP.
