Thats where the tow eye attaches so they can yank the car out of the snow if it gets stuck on a drift. The tow eye is part of the tool kit in the trunk and just screws into the metal part of the bumper behind a small plastic cover which is missing in this photo. Most if not all BMWs have this feature.
