Funny, I pinched the rear ashtray light wire during my install. When I turned on the headlights, none of the dash or control lights would illuminate. I had to go back in and free up the ashtray light wire, now the lights are fine. Go figure?

I found that plug when I installed my armrest too. No idea what it's for. I love my arm rest too, had one for 4 years in my 1995 325. I actually pinched the brake light wire during the install and had to splice in a new (longer) wire. Pretty easy install though.

But those 1997+ cupholders SUCK! I just received a ~1995 cupholder insert that should fit in the cupholder and actually prevent cans and travel mugs from flying out during braking or cornering. I have yet to stick it in the car, but Ron Stygar says it should fit. About $5 and change from Nick Alexander BMW.
