    What does that box say on it?

    and is the wire on your dash no the other end of the cable with the big connecter on on the right

    Well the first pic is of a microphone for a hands free car kit, but can't make out what the second pic is though. If they're not meant to be there, remove them. Make sure there is no current running to them first, to prevent shorting out, or blowing fuses.

    looks like a cable for a phone kit tax disc antenna
    fiited properly diffficult to remove. lazy someone has cut the cable
    have you the remains of a kit anywhere ? but you have to remove some trim to find out, usually under glovebox
    if it was me i would either find the other end any remove properly or cut it a lot shorter and push remainder under screen frim

    Just be careful if you go pulling it all out, dodgy installers tend to tap into Live and grounds in the strangest places. Id hate for you to start blowing fuses (or worse)
    Things to do:

    Buy a petrol fuelled BMW again

    no not BMW fitment
    looks like its all there except the phone holder/connector
    its old so pull it out or forget its there, unless you want to fit your own in that case you can always use the mic lead as its fed all the way thru and only a phono plug and will conn to a newer b'tooth set
    but take care with one on the left as its looks like the live so best if you unplug to use plenty of tape to isolate it
    if it was mine i wou;d just leave it there as its doing no harm bt going back to original post cut the cable short to hide it better............Mike
