PT-CAN BUS wiring. Help please!


I'm fitting a data logger on my E90 M3 (02/2009 build).
I need to give it access to PT-CAN information, but I've searched for countless hours and I still cannot find a definitive answer as to where to tap in.

I have a friend who has worked on a M3 GT4 and he says there were two loose CAN lines available on the right hand side of the car (near the gear lever) which he used for the same purpose.

I tried to find them on my M3 without any luck

However, I did find a loose two wire plug (orange/blue & brown) hanging from the wiring loom that goes behing the JBE module.

I find it strange that it could be a CAN plug, since I're read people talking about custom harnesses and taping in the JBE connectors.

So, who has done it? Do I need to tap in one of the JBE plugs? Which pins please?

I promise to write up a DIY afterwards

Thanks in advance.
