I see that you are trying to run the wire in the hood. BMW places the antenna at the rear roof of the car. There is a rubber grommet in the trunk lip which can be removed and replaced with one with a hole in it. The wire is run through there. You can place the antenna inside on the rear package shelf by the rear window and it will work just fine.

I have mine on the trunk lid. Loop the wire under the interior panel under the lid, down the harness inthe hinge (I tried to get it in the rubber thingy, but was afraid to ruin the XM fitting), and around the back seat after tucking it in the panel in the trunk. You can then lead it under the outboard trim by the doors and up into the right side of the dash... I have it finishing up in the trim over the glove box where the Roady II is mounted.
