Please tell me I'm not the only one who never noticed this little guy tucked away on the left side of the glove box...





...it's a flashlight, for the record.

Nope. I just replaced the AAA battery in it, pretty decent little LED flashlight.

I don't have one. I wonder if they don't put them in the E93?

I have never understood why people hate the idrive. I freaking love it. It is so easy to navigate. Very easy to use without having to move your hand far. It is the best I have used on any car.

I agree with this. It's by far the best system in any car I've owned.

It wasn't snatched. It is just one of the many things that were decontented by BMW to save a few dimes with our recent model years.

I got one too, it's pretty handy when u need a flashlight...
I believe it depends on the dealer/salesperson whether u get one or not, some of them throw it in as a little gift, just like people get an umbrella or keychain stuff..

For those of you missing the glovebox flashlight, this aftermarket Lenser P2 LED light ($16) fits the space perfectly. I bought one for my E90 that I since sold, and it also fits an E92.

Here is a link on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/LED-Lenser-880.../dp/B0054K1MZI

When I was looking last year, the OEM flashlights from BMW were NLA, even from Tischer.

This. By 2011 they were phased out completely. The Lenser P2 is a great replacement.
