I've got the 2011 Z4. Can I see something from the menus, or, do I have to find the piece of kit somewhere on the car?

You can look up your VIN number on BMWVIN to see if you have a COMBOX in your car.
You should also be able to tell from the build date of your car. I believe the cutoff date was Sept 2010. All cars after that date have a COMBOX.
