so... any US dealer will have a sh!tload of those laying somewhere in the back of the house??? what is the part number? maybe we can buy one for the car - that option is sure too much for an average person who never sees the battery compartment, but for us, who retrofit things all the times and connect/disconnect the batteries several times a year, the switch could be very nice thing to have...

it would be cool to have one - in my case, my car was shipped several times by the boat, and everytime the battery was ruined - even once, when it was disconnected...

is there an actual location within the car that is designated for that switch?

That's super cool. If you look closely, it actually looks like an OEM BMW part (see gray tag - BMWs have identical tags throughout their wiring harnesses). Perhaps this is some old stock that the seller is trying to get rid of (many older BMW were delivered from Germany with these installed and the dealer removed them prior to delivery - the switches were sent back to BMW for re-use).

PS. I sent you a PM...

i just did a search and as usual, found nothing... but, i remember reading, and even commenting on an automated battery cut-off switch - it had to be a year or longer ago... i hate getting old...

can you guys point the computer challenged terminator in the right direction???

Wondering this as well...It kind of looks like that flange on the key end would mount somewhere!

Not the case, they are shipped back to the factory and installed in new vehicles being built.

too bad... if there is a factory specified location (not just laying around, as I had read elsewhere), i'd like to have thins installed on a permanent basis.. if not permanent, than i will consider this for shipment mode, when the car is shipped overseas again...

in the INPA i had seen TRANSPORT mode - anyone knows what it does? if the car is put on the boat, should it be set into transport mode? can it be moved under its own power on/off the boat, around the port facilities?

Would be great to have. My subwoofer cable is routed directly from the battery with a fuse link in the cable. Is there any reason we couldn't something like that?
