E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Glove box surprise

After poking a little deeper into my glovebox, I found 2 things: 1. that I do in fact have a CD changer and 2. There is what appears to be a dummy key clipped to the back wall of the glove box. Anybody know what that key like thing is?

Okay, but what I don't have is the key itself, just the plastic gizmo that it would go into.

Here are some photos that will help explain the function plastic key fob shaped holder you have just found.









Did you also know that you can remove the rear of the glove box compartmetn to reveal a fue box? There is a little spriing loaded button at the rear of the glove box that allows you to pullup the 2 inch back end of the storage area (below CD changer) which when removed will reveal a bank of fuses.

What you found was a key holder not a key. Id you have the valet key (a small plastic key) it can be inserted there. If you don't have it you can order one from a dealer.

Obviously there is no owner's manual in the glovebox.

LOL

Many people have not opened their owner's manual (or downloaded one from BMW for free) based on what I see.

does the owners manual even fit into the glove box? The owners manual goes into the trunk just behind the right wheel well there is a "dent" in the floor, put the manual there and the floor is level.
