Need help with Wiring

Complete n00b here with wiring.

For a project, I would like to fish some wire from the engine bay into the cabin (or vice versa).

Ideally towards either or both footwell/footwells.

2004 BMW z4 3.0i.

I want to know how I can do this. Thanks guys

I'm guessing through this?


Where does this go? To the glovebox/fusebox?

LOL. I'm reading this thread thinking "that pic really looks familiar" .......... duh! Yes, the other side of this is above the passenger foot well behind the fuse area, which is behind the glovebox, if I remember correctly. Once you fish the wire from the inside of the car, you can route it whever you want.

My guess is lighting effect, either something for the wheel wells, underneath the car, or grill lit. Only things I can think of. Unless he went to go do a train horn or something silly, but at that point your looking at redneck not aznz.
