I took the LH feed from the loom connector positioned just under the RHS of the gear lever cover. Can't remember the colours unfortunately, but they are the same listed in one of the 'how to' guides.
I guess you could also pick up a connection from the same loom as it travels though the console between the front seats. However it would be hard to identify the correct cables.
I was forgetting your's has rear doors, so I can understand the attraction of avoiding taking a feed from the doors, as you'd have to route it back out again.
Following the great guides by Pottsy and co. I found it very easy to take off the dash and slide out the head unit, so don't give up on this 'extreem' option. Whilst doing this, you can also sort out a lot of other issues, such as fitting an aux input (very useful), or hard wired bluetooth/portable nav feeds etc. if you require.
