If you are standing in front of the vehicle.. facing the car looking into the engine bay.. the upper left corner has an empty space that has mounting brackets but nothing there. It looks like it's a space where they could put a battery.. Any ideas? Is my car missing something?

I think the DSC unit used to be there on sedans / coupes and does the wagon have the battery there?

Do a search in the archives both here and over at bimmer.org and you'll find a thousand posts covering the same topic.

Basically, it's there because BMWs are mass produced. That used to be the battery compartment for European 4 cylinder models, and used to house the DSC electronics on 6 cylinder models.

According to my salesman...

...in Europe they run their emergency vehicles with two batteries and the second one goes there.
