Valentine 1 hardwire?

I am trying to hardwire my Valentine 1 to my 2007 335i. I am setting up an extra 12v acc power plug by the fuse box. I have done this before in my other cars, it makes it easier to take out and move to another car.

I have a full sized fuse adapter but every fuse I pull it seems to have constant power even when the key is not in the car... What fuse can i tap into???

There will be constant power until I think something like 30 seconds after the car is locked

Garage List
You want to tap into one of the Homelink fuses. That way the V1 will turn on/off with the ignition button.

I am also interested into a small guide how to take it from the fuse box. I did it my VW R32 and it was a piece of cake but this one seems a big harder. Any input be great!

It does. As soon as ignition goes off, not accessory.
