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.
nope, battery in front in mine cant see an easy way to get a wire from under the bonnet into the main body of the car :S Dont realy want to take the power from anywhere else as i wil probly end up blowing a fuse somewhere else!
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...
