I put in a cobra radar detector, and i hid the wire just fine. I poped of the black plastic pannel on the top of the dash, and the went down from the edge of the plastic trim along the radio(right side that is). I didn't have to pop it off but i knida losened it up. You need to pop off the plastic trim peace that surrounds your shifter, while doing so discconect the ESC and Power Window Controls.This is where i acutally started to put the wire through the process. First i plug it into the power point in the arm rest. I put it under the rubber pad, and went through the hole provided. I made sure that the wire was not in the way of any divise by the shifter. Then I took the end that plugs into the actual radar dectector, and i guided it up through the minimal space you can see up through the plastic trim peace ( the only thing that i could find to do so was a plastic zip tie). After that it is cake guide to wire up through to your desired location. Then all you have to do is make sure all plastic pieces are secure and back in place. You plug in the wire on the left side of the radar dectector, and replace the top pannel. There You go buddy. Any questions just ask.
