Whats it for?

My 2017 GSA has an electrical plug just above the left radiator. I asked my local BMW dealer service manager whats that for? He didn't know (and thats ok). I have the factory disc service manual..The electrical section is a cartoon and worthless.

Got some very knowledgeable fellas in here.
So maybe someone knows?
Thank you.

I'm wondering if it's to add a fan on the left radiator. Look on the right side and see if the fan plug looks like the left plug.
