This female connector should mate up to the male on the new panel. I plan on wiring it in to the pair of wires going to the DC plug in the armrest but I'm still working on just how to do it. I'll update later when the plugs arrive.

Did you ever complete the mod, any write up to it? looking to add the rear power outlets and maintain power in the armrest.
Thanks

this was one of the first things I wanted to do to my e90 and it quickly became one of the last mods I'll do, probably even behind titanium lug nuts lol.

Missing parts

I hope this is what you all have been looking for. Now I just need to figure out how to connect them to the other factory wires! Jeff

Now, if you’ve been following this thread since the beginning or read it all and are amongths those assholes like me who want to do this install as cleanly and as OEM as humanly possible, I have finally tracked down the BMW Part Number for the pin connector that plugs into the Rear Plug wiring. It was mentioned earlier in the thread but we were only able to produce the AMP Part#

Black 2-Pin terminal connector [Female] - 61 13 1 378 106
Circular Pin Contact [Male] (2.5) - 61 13 1 376 191 (x2)
Black Plug Connection Bracket - 61 13 1 378 908
Fiberglass Mat Wrap - 61 13 6 920 760

It’s a plug from e46 Harmon Kardon sound application and other various model application that fits and works perfectly for the rear cigarette male connector. Unfortunately the plug is NLA from BMW and there are no schematics that I plowed through, NA or Euro-Spec, on RealOEM that had the rear cigarette lighter plug panel with the wiring alongside to get the exact e90 part number but I trust this should suffice granted you can manage to track one down. There is also a small plastic support that will clip the plugs inside the center console just like the white connector for the armrests wiring but I have provided the part for the black plastic bracket to keep everything looking 100% OEM













I haven’t done the install yet as I just got my panel in today from Turner but since I am also a late model that lacks the front cigarette wiring as well, I’m going to be tackling both projects at the same time. Listed below are the part numbers for the front cigarette wiring plug/lights

White 3-Pin Terminal Plug [Female] - 61 13 1 378 113
Circular Pin Contact [Male] (2.5) - 61 13 1 376 191 (x3)

The actual 16g/12g wiring will be my own Brown/Red source because BMW decided to be cheeky and not have part #s for that so Home Depot it is

Cheers men,
And best of luck
