small blue aerial X5

My husband has just bought a 2003 BMW X5. I was driving it last night and a small blue aerial in the middle of the front of the bonnet appeared for about a mile of the journey and then disappeared.
My husband thinks I am imagining it and I know I wasn't.
Does anyone know what this could be?

Could it have been a reflection from street lights?

The only blue symbol near the speedometer, are the brights. I have no idea what in the world a bonnet is, other than what a baby wears.

Yeah yeah, I've heard of a boot....the trunk. Because of a situation in person with a BMW customer. He was from England or somewhere there abouts.

Yeah, uh huh. A booty is the loot that is stolen by piracy or confiscated in time of war, like Pirates of the Carribean.

Right?
