OMG, I have to laugh (sorry!). The latch to open the compartment is in plain sight, even if you don't RTFM! Glad you guys found it.

I meant "electronic" gear shift, there are no actual cables or connections to the transmission as older shift methods.

Not to be negative, but other F10 owners won't guess, they'll know what it is (exhaust), and the majority of non-BMW owners couldn't give a care. It's all about what YOU want.
