for those of you that have a factory block heater, can you tell me where the heck the cord is and how to get it out? temps are dropping pretty fast here and I am going to need to plug my car in soon...thanks in advance...

Re: Block heater question
The cord is likely to be tied up in the upper left hand corner of the engine bay (when looking backward, toward the vehicle's underhood.) In front of the passenger seat near the firewall, right behind the airbox/ intake tube. You can just see the wires tied up behind my airbox!
I have a 2011 luxury in mocha steel with a tan interior...good thing you provided the pic because when I took it in to the dealer this weekend I had to tell them where I thought it was...the guy was looking on the other side...
Just wanted to say thanks to Captain for the above image, since we didn't know where the cord was on our 2014. We never had to find it on our 2011, because before we ever used it, the cord fell out of place and melted on the catalytic converter, forcing the dealer to install a new one.
However, when they did that for us, they routed the new cord out of the open area under the grille. The cord on our 2014 isn't long enough to do that, so we routed it out the top and shut the hood on it. I'm guessing the dealer had installed an accessory cord on the 2011 that was longer than the factory cord.
