    Yup this is fine.

    The cigarette lighter just clips out of place so you'll be able to access the wiring there.

    You could also use a spare fuse point on fuses 1-11 which are ignition fed as such.

    Great, that might be even better, how would I wire to a empty fuse connector?

    Just get a repair wire from audi for that fuse point & push into the spare socket on fuses 1-11 & solder/heatshrink your hardwired end to that wire, then plum a fuse in, it should already have the car power bar side in place for 1-11 anyway so just the hardware end to add
