I don't think its a light, cause when i reset all my guages, all the lights go on on the gauges except that one.

It is a light. The reason the light doesn't come on when you reset your guages is because you don't want that light to come on for no reason....

You see, when you hit 160mph, that light fires up, confetti pops out everywhere and your stereo plays "We Are the Champions" (not actual title) by Queen, and the dancing girls come out of the trunk through the split seats in the rear. If you don't have split seats, you just get the confetti and the gay 70's song. :P

its not a light.. the nazis put a camera in there to watch all of the american BMW drivers get head while driving or parked in their BMWs. Once they have such "incriminating" evidence on all of use they will show it to all of our sig others.. or parents for those of you who have no sig other, and this will allow them to take over the world!!!!! MUAHAHAHAH MUAHAHAHA MUAHAHAHA!!!!

No, but really, I think its a speed warning light that you can set from you OBC... I think... but I don't have a "real" obc just a gay ass clown time and temp POS, that won't light up even with new bulbs....

Nope... I've set my speed limiter before and that doesnt light up when you go over the speed that is set on the OBC... all you get is a little flashing light on the OBC and a aural warning... like a beep.

Keep trying.......

thats actually not a light.. its actually senses light.. its how the car figures out how to compensate the dash lights to accomodate the time of day and strenght of outside light. at night shine a flashlight on it. and youll see your interior lights dim.. in the day cover it and youll see the lights brighten..
