I just bought an x50 and ordered a direct wire yesterday. I want to hard wire to my 2007 jetta's fusebox next to the driver's side. I know we usually tap into the radio fuse, but that's actually in a separate fuse box under the hood. I'd rather tap into the fuse box inside the car, for convenience purposes. I've got a few fuses in there that might work: "Power Outlet" (i think that's the 12V in the center console) and "Cigarette lighter" (probably the 12V cig lighter), as well as some others. I figure one of those two should work fine, but should I be concerned about overloading the circuit if I plug something into the 12Vs (cell phone charger for instance)?
I have pictures posted of the fuse diagram from the drivers manual as well as a photo I took of the fuse box. the jpegs are posted at http://www.hulihan.net (not a commercial site; it's just my own machine with those pictures posted)
Any recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks!
