Post HELP NEEDED! New E46 Owner

Hi there!

I'm completely new to this forum and have just purchased a late 2000 E46 318ci SE.

I have some questions to make:

1) How do I check whether my car has electric mirrors or not?

2) How do I change the time settings?

3) How do I change the display to show outside temperature? Is it possible?

4) What's that small button next to the rearview mirrors joystick and switch?

5) I seem not to have an electric torch in the glovebox - is that possible?

6) There does not seem to be a first aid kit under the passenger seat - once again, is that possible?

Cheers!!!

1) do you mean electric side view mirrors? if so then you answered your own question by stating that you have a mirror switch under question 4
2) Change the time setting by using the right side button on the instrument cluster. It twists side to side. Twist it to set the time.
3) Use the BC button on the turn signal switch. push it in
4) send a picture of the button. It may be for "fold in" mirrors which isnt an option for e46 in the US but it may be an option there.
5) It should eb prewired, you can buy a flash light (torch) from your dealer
6)You can order a first aid kit from your dealer too

Thanks alot for your replies Dirty Tool!

Yes - I was referring to the electric side view mirrors

I am attaching a photo of the switch in question - How does it work? What's the button next to the slider switch for?

Sorry - I know this may sound dumb, but what's "BC" referring to?

Cheers!

The slider should change the control from left to right sides. The button should make the mirrors fold inward for parking situations.

Hi!
I found your message because I, too, have just purchased a late 2000 318Ci SE, and was looking for how to set the time:=)
