Do you know sure that this 'charging plug' is available on your car?

Are you talking about a block heater so your car is easier to start in the winter?
I live in Canada and from what I know BMW's have no such feature.

i CALLed my friend at BMW, depending on the model this IS a feature most BMW's have, it just keeps a constant to the car (power) so that it starts in the morning and your cells in your battery don't freeze. Its on the driver side underneath the dash i the upper left corner (the wall next to your frame) if you don't see the black box, you don';t have one.

Oh yeah one more thing, this is a Canadian thing only.

&quot;Lets show this prehistoric bit** how we do things downtown&quot;
