    Was at BMW showroom today and noticed all new body style BMW convertibles had this in the rear console. No one at the dealership knew what it was, any one here have a clue?

    I was just reading about it, I think it's a motion sensor for the alarm.

    Nice pickup there

    i can see that being a vent to prevent mold like someone said previously a proximity sensor is usually the size of a small led.
     
  15. Nice car. In the first pic it looks like the rear of the car is sitting lower than the front, is it?

    I've seen interior motion sensors before :dunno:

    buddy of mine could park his car with the windows open, if someone put their hand in the alarm would go off
