    Under the Driver's seat resides the memory computer for the seat position memory option. It is behind a black plastic panel.

    Under the Passenger seat resides a first aid kit - generally with a red cross on the front top of the black kit.

    Fire Extinguisher (BMW's recommended installation location)resides under the Driver's Thigh Bolster.

    Richard, can't get into snapfish on the link. Can you describe what you are curious about? Does it have about 5 electrical connectors coming in on the front top edge under the driver's seat?

    thanks, Gary

    Gary, its black and about the size and shape of a snuff can. It houses a retractable cable with a cleavus like connector. There is one under each front seat on the right side.
    If you will send your personal email address to: [email protected], I will send you the pic.

    Thanks much,

    Richard

    Richard,

    If you have electric seats, it sounds like you are describing one of the motors for the seat control functions. There are two in the back of the seat to control the headrest and seat back angle, three in the frames of the seats to control fore/aft, front and rear seat height, and one up under the front of the seat to control the thigh bolster. I think this is what you are looking at.

    Otherwise, maybe there is a Skol logo on the can!

    Gary
