power source ??

Getting ready to fit the aurora reversing / licence plate lights back into the rear of the 9er (been doing charity work for the last month so not had much time) and am using H1 55w bulbs. Going to be using a relay with the existing reversing lights switching the relay. Do i have to run a fused supply directly from the battery all the way back or is there a suitable power wire somewhere back there i can tap into?

Got a detailed write up with pics of this if anyone is interested in doing this mod.

Do you have the towing package with the factory lighting connector? If so, you have a readily available (and completely unused) power connection right there (#4 in the diagram below).

There is a "pocket" on the driver side near the tail light in the back. my old 98 had a trailer hook up for the lights/brakes stuffed in that pocket. Check there?
