2013 Unused Fuse Location

I read (Latebreaking's DIY V1 install), the 2008 - 2010\11's have an unused fuse (#5).

Does anyone know of similar situation with the newer models?

Searched around but missed it, it the info is out there.

Search. The v1 install has been covered with fuse tap or using the "green and whit wire" in the front seat light/sunroof........" area

Yes, I've read those installs. While it's easier. If I use the green wire in the headliner and that wire later develops issues, it will be a ton of work to fix. That's why I decided to go with the fuse method.

Hey guys, sorry to bring this post up from the dead. Where is fuse #5 and is it unused and available to tab into for a V1 ? This is for a 2013 e92 M3.

I used Fuse #5 to wire my V1 in a 2013. It should be unused. I also think it's a far better solution than using one of the wires in the headliner. It's about a 10 minute install.
