Default Where do I run a wire through the firewall(s)

I know some of you have had to run a wire for (foglights etc) through the A4 firewall(s). Where's the best place to run the wire through, and how do I find it?

Thanks
(searched the archives, but there was only one post about the vacuum line)

Default Depends on the year

Some have a grommet to the right of the battery (see pics).

If you don't have that, you can run through ECU box, but I don't recommend this for power wire for an amp, but it's fine for boost line.

Run the wire(s) in and out from the ECU box.

Default Try going through the ECU housing.

If you're facing the front of the car, there's also a rubber grommet left of the steering wheel column to run wiring through as well.
