Those mysterious holes at the back of a beemer, what are they? We were wondering that in a another forum and nobody had a clue as to what they are.. Any info here, gents?

At first I thought they were custom exhaust holes, but to be honest i'm thinking more that they are somewhere for trucks to pull the cars out of gravel traps or something.

They change colour depending on the mood of the car. White is neutral. Red is anger, blue means its lacking oxygen, black means its feeling suicidal, and for brown..uh..dont think you want to know ;)

Ok, found the answer. They are for refueling. Don't have a slightest idea why there's two, probably for the air to come out.. or for a crosseyed mechanic. Who knows, the Germans are strange folks..

Here's a picture from the back showing the fueltank.

either I am showing my age or you guys are young or new touring cars / motorsports fans.

they holes are for refueling.
1 is fuel in, the other is when the tank is full the petrol comes back up into the line showing that the tank is full (in simple answer form)...

Not really a isolated thing to the e30 :wink2:

Lol i thought we all knew, haha. The cars these days that still use a system like this f.e. are the Janpanese GT cars in the JGTC.

But about the lines being white? how come we can't skin them anyway?
Are they missing Polygons or turned inside out Polygons?

The E30 M3 looks like a rushed modeling job because of the line.
