    Hi all

    I have just purchased a new 330d xDrive Saloon and I'm looking to fit a dash cam behind the rear view mirror.

    Has anybody attempted to hard wire a camera / speed detector / nav unit? Is it easier to splice into the dimming mirror loom, or better run a wire to the fuse box?

    A guide would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    Update ...

    I have found a great workaround for hard wiring the DashCam. It turns out there is a 12v Outlet underneath the glove box. I simply plugged the cam in there and routed the cable behind the plastic trim around the passenger foot well - up behind the rubber door seal - across the windscreen post - up and across the windshield behind the roof trim.

    This is not as invasive as a hard wire and the cable is not visible anywhere on the route! It could also be used for speed detectors. I will try and post some pics / YouTube video later.
