Can anyone identify these cables behind the bumper

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hello all
Car today being mentioned is 435d xdrive F32.

Behind the bumper, on the passenger side, i have cables with no connector heads, so i am trying to figure out what is what, to buy the connector housing heads.

One of the cables i know is for the fog light, the others is Not for the headlight, Or parking sensor cable, as those are already in/inplace.

What else could it be for? :/

This what i was also thinking guys,the temp sensor maybe?
At first i thought it may be the horn, as i know you have a low pitch and high pitch and then someone said to me, no theirs only 1x, an on my car theirs already one on the drivers side.

The temp sensor however, i wonder where on the passenger side of the bumper it would fit onto.

I looked up on realoem web but they dont show the hole where it plug. By the way, it's on the part #4 (f32 420i msport but i believe this part is all the same)

If you have another f32, you can put finger though the lower front air duct, you will find it.

Some f32 I saw have it on the deflector. I think it's depend on model in each country

Firstly thank you for that mate, much appreciated for your time, i think your right it may most likely be the sensor, As inside the car on the speed cluster screen it is showing the temperature as 40* So their definitely is something not right there.

I have connected the fog light with the right cables, so thatch one cable out the way.

So all that is left is a skinny brown and white cable, which is coming from the integrated supply module.
