OBD port..where is it?

F36 RHD
Thought it was hidden under dash on drivers side?
In a dealer today and all cars had some solar thingy plugged into a port behind a flap in the footwell. Is that it or another charging port?

Want to add a HUD when car arrives so if it's the footwell thingy the plug will be too awkward and visible.

Cheers

So is it behind a flap by the hood release?
If so then a permanent connector is out, unless you can unscrew it?

Well that's crap!!
Eventually found some info and yes on LHD cars it's under the dash but on RHD it's behind a flap as said next to trunk release and cannot be used for any aftermarket obd cables like a HUD as it cannot be hidden.
Not happy, only chance now is if it can be moved or recessed. Not even a right angle plug will fit behind with the flap closed....grrrr
