This feature is used to illuminate dark driveways/areas for the driver. The time out is dealer programmable - I had mine set for 60 seconds when I picked up the car.

I would soften the adhesive with a blow dryer and peel the pad off the dash. If there is remaining residue, try desolving it with a little WD-40. You can use soapy water to remove the WD-40.

Congrats and good luck. I picked up my new 2003 530i on 12/13/02 and still get a thrill everytime I driver it. It only has 60K on the clock so it has a lot of life left in her.

I would think the BMW tow hooks are the same across all the model lines. It would be too expensive to have unique tow hooks for each model considering its function.

Hope this helps...JL
