amp power wiring?

hi all, just baught a bmw e36 318is coupe on an L plate, does anyone know the best place to bring an amp power cable through from the battery to the boot? most cars have a gromet that can bring wire through?!
Pics would be helpful.
The stereo system is pretty much my only plan for the car... for now, figured i may aswell get it set up while waiting for insurance cert so can tax it.

cheers
Pip

not fimiliar with the 318. But isn't the battery in the back. If so mount your amps back there. the best way to get the best sound is shortest distance between power and amp. and amp and speakers.

yeah the power needs to be at the battery and fused within about 12 inches of the battery. Ther's not a real easy way. You will need to look for a grommet you can put the wire through or you will have to drill your own hole and put your own grommet in there to keep the wiring from chaffing. From there, its pretty easy to pull up the door sill plates and run the wiring under the carpet to the trunk. Hope that helps...
