look for a rubber gormet thats already there and not used OR you'll have to drill a hole for the power wire to the amp. If the gormet is already there, then take it out, pierce the center to fit your wire through and feed it through. If you gotta drill, be carefull obviously and check 10 times before drilling that nothigns in the way.

You mean the power wire?

Isn't the battery already in the trunk in E36's? I know my friends 97 323is has it in the trunk.

He is referring to the RCAs.

I can't help with an e36 though.

In my car I took the whole center console where the parking brake was out and the rear seat and ran everything straight back under the carpet. It is the easiest way with the least amount of stuff to remove and everything comes out really simple.
