My Ride: 2003 BMW 330xi
Disconnected Wire, Center Console

Hello,
I am new here and this is my first post. I just bought a 2003 330xi and I am in the process of cleaning her up a bit. I removed the center console and came across a wire that was disconnected and wrapped. Can someone help me determine what it is?

Not positive, but that might be the pre-wiring for the cell phone.

Tangent,
Thank you, I was looking at another post about connecting a Media Bluetooth system and they mentioned the wire. My car is pre-wired for the cell phone kit so I believe you are correct.

Thanks again for the response!

Correct, factory pre-wiring for cell phone: http://e46fanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1049665.

Also useful for having a power outlet in your center console, see this DIY: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=631126.
