Winshield washer tank

Hey guys soo question about the Winshield washer reservoir tank . Soo i ilive in Los Angeles, and it NEVER rains i dont think ive ever used the washer fluid for anything. And we all know that bmw engines are jam packed and the tank is abnormally HUGE soo if i could relieve some space for it then why not. Any tips, thanks in advance!

Safety issue, in my opinion, for it not to be there for normal use or in the case of emergency.

It gets in the way of very few things. I wouldn't even bother moving it.

It doesn't bother where it is so leave it.

I'd rather have something there than a big random empty space in my engine bay.

At least you have the black lid reservoir. The frosted lid version is super ugly.
