The other night I came home and after I got inside the house, I realized I had forgotten something I had stashed in the compartment between the seat backs in my 2007 E85 Z4. I went back out to the dark garage, and could see light coming out from gaps in the door. I stopped to look to see if the door switch had become jammed, or dislodged, but I couldn't find one. Since then it seems that when I am out at night driving, and I turn my head to the right to check for traffic, the light coming from the compartment catches my eye. At first I was worried about the drain on the battery, but it seems to be on a timer, and goes off a few minutes after the ignition is turned off. This has all been somewhat confusing, because this is the second Z4 I have owned (the first was a 2003), and I have not noticed it in almost 9 years of ownership - I like to think I am more observant than that. Am I correct in my analysis of the situation - that there is no on/off switch in the compartment, and yes, the lights turn off after a few minutes, and thus no danger to the battery. Makes me want to check up on the light in my refrigerator now! Thanks in advance.
