This one is a fiber optic loop plug where diagnostic equipment hook up to which attached to small plastic cover that the mechanic can pop it open and get access to it from within the glove compartment, the pointy end (w/ white plastic) is a loopback end plug so the fiber optic stay in continuous closed loop if it's open you'll get various iDrive warning/error i.e. SOS malfunction.
