2001 E39 M5 bumper wire

I cant seem to figure out what this wire is on my 2001 E39 M5, this attached picture is taken from the front of the car with the bumper removed(in front of the left wheel). The wire in question is the one I have highlighted with a red circle. My car has an old K40 installed, I don't know if this could be a wire for that or for something else. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

It's either the worlds smallest tow hook attachment point, or a ground wire I believe.

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label


OEM is not what BMW sells
