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.

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.
