Hi guys,

I've got an F10 2013 M-Sport (EU/UK) BMW and trying to locate VSU180 also known as Dynamic Voltage Converter - part number 61429251984.

Already tried checking in the luggage compartment / right side of the boot - see pictures.
I also checked the other side - left, where I managed to locate combox module.
Tried to look for the diagrams - unsuccessful. But managed to find the picture of the plastic container it goes into - see pictures.

At this point, I am running out of ideas on where to look further.

Please help,

Thanks.

I haven't noticed it there either when I lifted the floor panel (will post a picture tomorrow). All I had under it was a battery and that's about it - see picture (not mine, but looks like that).

@Ron26 Mine 100% is not in the boot. If you had a look in the boot under the floor or behind side panels and it's not there, my suggestion would be to look behind the glove box. I have had a glance there, and I believe that is where it resides. I haven't fully dug in there yet, but I am pretty sure it should be there. That's where I spotted the central gateway module and not far off from it was a block that reminded me of the voltage control module.
