During PDI I have noticed that some of the X3 vehicles come with a flashlight and no place to plug it in, the wire is there but not the connector. In those cases i have been putting the flashlight in the vehicle without plugging it into anything. No one seems to know why the flashlight connector is missing on these vehicles.

Wink Glovebox Flashlight

Hi All

This is my expereince! I noticed the missing flashlight so I contacted my salesman. He too felt is should me installed but was not totally sure. (Note: BMS has a disclaimer in the brochure concerning changes can be made) He checked, made some calls, and finally agreed to have one installed in my 2004 Jet Black 3.0 X3.

All I needed to do was have the parts and service depts verify what was needed. In the glovebox was a plug where the flashlight should be installed. The Service Department determined the unit was pre-wired and ordered the flashlight accessory!

I am now pleased with my Flashlight Accessory!
