Hardwiring radar detector

Which empty fuse slot are people using to hardwire a V1 or other detector?

Thanks.

I used a "mini add a fuse" from a auto parts store that has two fuse slots. make sure to pick up some extra 5 amp fuses. I use the homelink fuse slot and took the fuse out and put two 5 amps in the " add a fuse" and then plug that in where the homelink fuse was.

Works on E93s too. I used the 5 amp fuse in slot #7.

I had wired my E90 328 the same way a few years ago. Interestingly, the torx head screw used for grounding was not present, so I ended up drilling a tiny hole in the metal support brace and used a small bolt/nut to attach the ground.
