the E30? I know it goes under the dash somewhere, but what side and what is it near? If I remember correctly, I think it goes behind the headlight switch back there, but I can't remember 100%. All help on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, guys.

It should be mounted on top of the ecu in the glove box. Its the green box with like 12 pins.

At least that's where's its at on the 528e, and I suspect the same on the e30. It should be mounted above the bracket that holds the ecu, or somewhere in that vacinity.
