Default Running amp wire?

I wannaruna 2awg wire to the trunk but i don;t wanna go through the passenger side air bag area. My Ssei has like metal cage around it so it makes it very difficult to run a wire through is there any other ways? Thx.

you could drill a hole in the firewall.
go under the car and drill up into the trunk.
go through the driver side of the firewall

I wanna try to make it look real nice and neat and keep the majority of the wire inside the car. I heard there was a place on the drivers side that was good for amp wire because the passenger side is off limitsi n my car there is alot of other wires and devices in the way it seems.

even if you use the drive side you have to realize that you will have the wire running all the way across your engine bay, which isn't the cleanest look.

I wish I had that problem... instead i'm stuck with 20 feet of power wire with dum dum all over it... ahhhh the joys of letting circuit city installers help you run power wire....

I ran my own. I borrowed my neighbor'* heavy-duty drill and drilled a hole for 4-gauge wirethen ran the wire from the battery, through the hole, across/under the dash, down the right side and into the trunk. Unless I show people how I did it, they don't believe I did it myself . You can do it with the right tools and a bit of time. Remember, your car is only important to you, not to the underpaid installer at Circuit City looking for a bonus and a phat tip for his shoddy work!
