    That might be for the Flux Capacitor. In the North American market it is believed to be mounted to the firewall though we have no confirmed sightings.

    OH: and to clarify...

    "PASSENGER fog light cover" location is left side of vehicle, I assume.

    Since front passengers sit on opposite sides of the car in different countries!

    I just checked a 2015 and it has the same 4wire plug tapped to the harness coming off the underhood fuse box.
    My mom says I'm cool

    Correct, here in AUS, we are right-hand-drive.

    To be fair, I haven't checked the service manual, yet.

    In the 2015 service manual circuit and configuration diagrams it shows a square 4 pin connector at that spot (red, violet, yellow brown) called "spare" (connector A-108). At the other end of those wires is a 4 pin connector up high in the dashboard behind the gauges (left hand drive) also called "spare" (connector C-221). I guess you could use them for anything if you can manage to get to the end up behind the dashboard.

    I think I read somewhere it's for the optional electric supercharger.
