    Through the ECU cover is easiest, drops down into the drivers footwell. There's even a spare grommet on the main ECU boot you can use.

    Wow, it's a 10 minute job, what on earth were you doing?
    The busbar is no good unless you have a pretty low power amp. Most sub amps will be pulling 30-40 amps, not a good idea on an existing spur with loads of other stuff running on it.
