Has anyone seen...

Ports in Ceiling

Potentially stupid question time:

In the ceiling of the X3, in front of the rear passenger grab handles, there are two little ports or openings in the ceiling. They have a plastic cover over...

637 miles on 19.4 gallons. Just a smidge under 33mpg. All highway, cruise set, 65mph on a business trip. Could've gone farther, but didn't know where next fuel stop would be.
