E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

650i 2006 mysterious pair of cables

Hi!
I was connecting M3 DCT (9 cables) gear knob in my car, and I did realise, there is a mysterious, unconnected plug pair of cables in area of ashtray - BR/GE and GR/RT (Brown-Gold and Grey-Red). Can anybody remember where this was connected to? Is there any ashtray backlight maybe?
