My Ride: 2002 M3 Coupe
Need Help with V1 Hardwire in 2002 M3

I just got a 2002 M3 and have searched the forums and online for hardwiring a Valentine 1 radar detector to the light panel by the sunroof switch. I also found Mad Russian's DIY for the hardwire, but I don't seem to have the same colored wires that everyone else references and uses to do it.

I have a multiwire harness and a three wire harness, which presumably would be the one that gets tapped, but the colors of the wires don't match the write up: http://m3.madrussian.net/diy_valentine_v1.shtml

Am I not seeing another wiring harness tucked inside there somewhere? Is the wiring color just different in early cars, including the 2002 cars?

Thanks in advance for any help...
