You are correct as my RHD 225xe has 1 under the glovebox. The owners handbook which is LHD only shows 3 power sockets.

That was good find HookyMan as I checked our 2 series convertible and there's and extra power socket under the glove box right side. I use the rear seat power sockets to power both radar detectors on both cars as the radar detectors do not need to be attached to the front wind screen to work well. One is in the try in the middle of the rear seat in our convertible and the other is in the tray under the centre arm rest on our 225xe.
