It fits in the holes where the hard top fitting kit is sited.
If you have a hard top it is located at the back by 2 fairly hefty lugs which fit into 2 holes. When removed the part you show masks the holes.
Sapphire black/Imola red and black interior/ red roof/ S54 - the only RHD one made.

Could it be the cover for the positive on top of the battery ?

The part number suggests it is a anti slip cover 8 413 620? never seen this before?

Part 6

Phil, is number 35 the part you were referring too?

I'm with Brian on this, as my hardtop trim and rotating cover look nothing like that!

There are very likely some numbers embossed on the back of it alongside the BMW logo. Post them up and we will soon tell if Brian is right.

Brian, how long did you spend looking for that! :shock:

You have better eyesight than me, is all I can say!!

I have no idea what the part is for, though it seems to only apply to post-facelift cars and mine is pre-facelift, so I wouldn't have seen it anyway.
