OEM tool kit?

I just noticed a tool kit in my battery cover....I opened it and ther is room for various items, but all I have there is the tow hook that screws into the front/back. Is this the only item my 328i came with, or did somebody take the other items?

I would guess your basic tool kit was raided.
This is what the basic US tool kit contained:

FWIW, minus the needle-nose pliers I added, this is the European tool kit.

Kind of makes a point, yes???
If your sport doesn't put blood, dirt or grease under your fingernails,
then it's just a game.

The basic toolkit was gutted for LCI model years! No crank for manually closing the sunroof, although virtually all cars imported by BMW NA come with sunroofs!
The only tools in my CPO 2011 328i were the tow hook and the screwdriver, nested in the molded plastic found beneath the felt lid of the tray on the right side of the trunk.

They progressively de-contented the tool kit through the E90 model run. My 2008 came without the sunroof crank and I think the wrench.

I doubt they saved $1 per unit doing this.
E91 26K miles, 6-speed, RWD, Alpine, Terra, Xenons, ZSP, ZCW, ZPP, PDC, CA, alarm, M shifter and M brake handle, Euro rear fog light switch, Euro aspheric mirrors, rear power outlets, Euro split armrest, V-1 inside rear headrest, Cocomats (back to the 1970s!), $10 clutch stop mod. CYHY integrated dash cam (latest project).

Others include: Volvo V70 T5 5-speed 212K, original clutch. (Soon to depart. )

What is interesting that manual explains how to open or close sunroof when there is no power - using hex wrench which used to be part of tools in older models and I don't see it anymore.. cutting cost everywhere
