Hard wired my Thinkware f100 dash cam to the fuse panel to utilize the parking mode feature. The dash cam basically records all the time, but when it senses the battery is running low, it will shut itself off after parking for a long period of time. I configured the dash cam to shut off when the battery reaches 12.2 volts.

3 wires
yellow - constant 12v to fuse #62 (used a standard add-a-fuse with 5 amp)
red - ACC wire to fuse #51 (used a mini-add-a-fuse with 5 amp)
black - ground wire to any exposed metal portion near fuse box

I got the 2 channel system and was able to tuck all the wires cleanly and out of site.

Wow, impressive build so far. I was surprised you found rims that fit the size of the i3 tires. Odd that HRE even makes it. Looks good. Keep up the work. I'll be following you.

Not sure why someone would want to put the expensive battery pack closer to the ground by lowering the vehicle. Looks are one thing...but hey, I don't have to deal with it if he hits some road debris.

Amazing build!

I got many ideas for my 2018 i3s from this thread. Those wheels are 8-)

So happy that you listed out the fuse panel hardwire fuses for dash cam! I have one ready to install and wasn't sure what to hook in to.
