That isn't extra. That is the active temp control. My '83 240D has the same despite having knob controls:

?

Thanks, Benzmizer, but I'm still not clear on this. If the thumbwheel controls temperature, what's the point of the other two knobs? Is it perhaps that the two knobs control how much heating is supplied, whereas the thumbwheel works only to control the temperature when the a/c is on? I don't see any other explanation. Enlighten me further.

your TE

Hi, I'm definitely interested in your car. It looks quite nice. Can you send me more pictures, like tons? Also, in the closeup of the dash it looks like the interior is blue. Is it? Finally, are the seats leather or tex? Seems like they should be cloth since it is a euro car. Is the speedo in kms?

my email is will.tracey@comcast.net

Thanks

The wheel is for the air conditioning. 1980 and later models ordered with ac had the wheel and 1979 and earlier models had a knob in the same spot for the ac.
