I'm thinking that my E36 is supposed to have some sort of light the illuminates when the hood is opened; am I incorrect in my assumption? I hope I'm right cuz that would be pretty ghetto for 'German engineering' to leave that out of their design.

Now listen, I'm just blown away that a light doesn't come on when I raise the hood! I mean, I've worked on cars for 30 years and everyone of them has had a light under the hood. Seems like BMW is taking a step backwards, huh? Do they not expect you to break down at night and need an emergency light? Weird.

Audi needs to get with the program. Bimmers get flashlights! My B6 S4 didn't have a light in the engine bay as well.

the e-torch is the LED flashlight from the touareg.

and yes, the flood light would do just fine (understatement). :)
