Anybody know what the little round plastic lump on the dash just below the clock on an e30 is? got little grooves in it and looks like an ultrasonic sensor for a car alarm.

Is that only on the se with the computer? unfortunately i have not got one.  Also are the switchs for the fog lights supposed to have a lit window above them as it looks like it should be.

The computer gong sound comes from a speaker mounted in the dash under panel on the drivers side. The little slotted device on the heater panel houses a temp. sensor when air-con. is fitted. The little windows above the fog light switches should illuminate when the ignition is on.

you can pick up a little kit in any motor factors to make a warning sound when lights on/ignition off
