Three bolt holes in the rear?

There are three bolt holes in the rear in the trunk on inside, the left compartment where there is a wire harness.

If you open your trunk and twist the cap that lets you access the left compartment you will see a wire harness. But there are also 3 bolt holes there on the sheet metal and looks like something was there but I dont know what.


Is this where the factory jack was or what is suppose to be there?

I have a 330ci 5spd.

If you mean these 3 'tabs' or 'body nuts' then they are for the CD changer frame. The jack is under the floor on the left side.

The frame is a strange shape, you can see it here and here.

oo thank you very much. The car came with HK system and 6 disc cd changer as I have that in a box the PO gave me. But he installed a headunit, amp, and sub and I am trying to downgrade the sub (12 in a box) and amp because they take up too much space and will probably bolt the amp to those holes.

I just wanted to know there original intended use incase I was missing something important.

I dont use cds anymore so I could care less about the 6 disc cd changer.
