Is your car a convertable? Because otherwise the battery is in the trunk and you should take the lead off of that unless you're running an insanely huge stereo.

hi mate if you take off your fuse box cover in the engine bay you will see a large amount of wires going through the bulkhead.
thats your access point. it might be a bit tight if your using substantial power cable, i used a long screwdriver as a guide, i taped the cable to the screwdriver and carefull pushed it in.
hope that helps you.
