Question M3 LCA question

Hey guys, Does anyone know anything about the M3 front LCA ? There is a small linkage that looks like it should be cliped on the front right hand LCA and isnt. It has a clip/clamp looking thing on the LCA for it that looks removeable.. Does anyone know what that is? I have replaced the LCA's on my 325i but that car didnt have that linkage. It looks like a very easy fix on that linkage that looks to be about 5 to 6 inches long and it looks like it has a very small bushing on it. Ive posted in the M3 section but havent got any replies yet. Ive tried a searching for it on the net with no luck. Any ideas??? Thanks

Do you have xenon headlamps? If so, I'm guessing it's the auto-leveling sensor.

A good clue is that your lights point down at the ground.
