Hi,

The warning triangle is missing from the emergency kit in my 05 530i. It only comes with the First Aids kit and several other stuffs.

Do anyone know where to get the warning triangle ?

Thanks,

Ching-Ho Cheng

I would ask the dealer to provide it.

Are the US vehicles supposed to have a triangle? I think the only cars that come with them are those delivered via ED.

That is correct. They are not US DOT approved. (Or was it NHTSA?) Apparently they fall over and do not withstand enough wind for us... US Delivery cars will not have them and USA dealers can't usually get them.

(Not sure about the E60, but this was correct for the E39 up to 2003, as well as the E38.)
