Question Hardwire Dash Cam into 2009 E90 320D

Does anyone know how to hard wire a dash cam into a 2009 E90?

I am looking to get one but not sure what methods to use to do on the E90. There's lots of guides for the 5 series but hardly any for the 3 series.

Also there are so many choices out there in dash cams so any recommendations would be useful.

Cheers

I've found a way how to wire the dash camera in and keep all cables hidden so they all come back into the glovebox.

I have no idea what fuses to tap into.

Fuse 73 (door lock) for constant power, and any metal piece for ground.

Is that all that's required? Wouldn't a constant power connection potentially drain the battery completely?
