I realize this is a completely unhelpful response, but...SOLAR PANEL? I've seen that feature in some high-end BMW 5-series cars but was not aware that such existed in the W8 anywhere in the world. Apparently you Aussies got some very unique features on your cars!

The only helpful thing I can say is that in North American cars, it seems that a LOT of odd things are connected to the "Comfort Control Module", including things like door sensors. Perhaps this system does a lot more in cars from OZ?

If I recall correctly, the module is cleverly placed under the carpet in the left-hand front footwell.

Have a look at this link:

Thank you for the picture of the bumper sensor, I am amazed that we didn't get those here in USA.
