The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up.

Where is the ECU located?

Does anyone know, or have a schematic of, where the ECU is located?

Someone said that it's under the hood, just below the left windshield (steering wheel side in a US car).

If so, it must be under the pollen filter compartment. But I'd like to get further confirmation before I start taking everything apart in order to pull the ECU to send it off for re-programming.

It is under the right microfilter (polen filter). Or left if you look from in front of the car... not the steering wheel side.
