It's interesting that you get those items (first aid kit & triangle) if you take European delivery which is unfortunately not available on the M5 for some reason.
Also, I'm in agreement that the flashlight that came with my e39 is not very effective. It has come in handy for me on occasion since I am not one that would carry around a flashlight otherwise.
One thing I noticed in a board pic of an open glovebox was that you do not need the converter plug to convert the flashlight charger to an auxillary dc charger. Maybe they decided having the fixed dc charger was of more importance to most?
