Two HVAC Vents on Driver and Passenger Sides by Doors

Anyone know the purpose for the two vents (stacked top and bottom) on the driver and passenger sides by the doors on the X5?

I donít see this in any other models...

Thanks.

I think the purpose of the vents is to blow air (temperature determined by occupants) into the cabin. Just a theory, what does your manual say?

They are both just regular vents...I guess they separated them to provide more "comfort" to areas that need it.

yeah, they're just standard vents, though the top and bottem ones are fed separately by different tubes.

IMO, they could have omitted the top vent and give more flow to the other vents

cool diagramt though, it show how the inside of my center console is alway cool to the touch...lol
