There was a scare a while back where it was reported that BMW cars were being stolen by thieves forcing open a wind and reaching in then plugging a reader into the socket to gain access to the car and drive it off without setting the alarm off.
I think since it was proved MINI dont have the problem, but some folk might have moved the plug on their car to a position more out of reach, just in case anyone had a go at it?
So it could be there but in a different place?

Hi

My mates one is on the drivers side, follow the trim under the steering wheel to the very right hand side almost up against the right hand kick panel trim it's under a bit of trim


Hope this helps

Yes I agree, if the port is not where it should be I think its been hidden, due to the fact thieves, have been stealing BMWs via the plug to program a new key, you should follow the loom to find it.
