Typically when I have seen this failure it is ALWAYS the fan pulling way more amps and the fuse will not always fail to protect it.
I would also use a good dab of dielectric grease to improve the connection because DC arcing isn't normal at all. I would imagine replacing the fan is a PITA as is the case in all 3 series BMWs.
Multiple FSU failures points right to the fan...
