Okay some of you may remember that a member here bought a mid 1990s 325i car and it had an OEM "electrical ciruit breaker" switch on a weird part of the E36 dash. And no other E36 owner claimed up to ever seeing such a button or heard of a button being located at that section of the dash...
anyway diagrams were posted, and photoshopped pictures were created to show us the "location" of the button...since it was such an odd thing....

anyway I was just cruising thru EBAY andguess what I found on a 1993 red 325i:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1993-BMW-32...1QQcmdZViewItem







anyway my point is I guess the guy was right after all about his car having this button, even though we all tarred and feathered him for hearesy!

That wood is disgusting. Whatever they were trying to do with it, they failed miserably.

didn't see the metric action going on there. Perhaps euros have the fog light switches there. Maybe that mystery is solved.

Drug dealers here are up to speed. They deal grams and kilos, and many carry 9mm pistols.
