Mein Auto: 2012 328i XDrive Coupe
New Owner!!

Hi Folks:
Just picked up my 2012 328i XDrive - Coupe.

Absolutely love it!!

Here are the pix:


One thing I did notice - there was this small what looks like a speaker hanging by 2 wires from the rear passenger side - it looks like there was double sided tape holding it on - anybody know what that is & more importantly how should it be properly attached? (see Pix)

external cell phone or satellite radio antenna ?? did you buy the car at a dealership or private ? if Private ask the previous owner??? looks to be a aftermarket something! maybe cause it is in the back a possible extended microphone ?

Congrats on your purchases. It appears to be a speaker/microphone for a cell phone. Enjoy your new ride!

Appears to be aftermarket...not an original BMW installation.
Congratulations on your new car...it's beautiful! Welcome to the forum.

Thanks Pointandgo
After speaking to the dealer it is an aftermarket item - part of the Parking Assist
