Unused electrical connector, front bumper?

I had to replace my auxiliary fan today so the front bumper cover was off.

I saw this unused electrical connector mounted to the frame to the left of the passenger side fog lamp.

Curious what it is. Anyone know? I'm guessing perhaps related to the headlight washer sprayer, but it has an awful lot of pins for that to make sense to me...

Looks like it might be PDC harness?

Aha! That would make sense!

Forgot these cars had that option. Seems they're so ancient now, but I bought an 06 535d Touring in Belgium in 07 and I thought PDC was so cool lol.

Yep - PDC harness - it can be accessed via the right fog lamp port at a pinch (if you need access and don't want to pull the bumper).

I guess in your case, you don't have any PDC.
