hardwiring the v1?

So I was planning to hardwire my V1 to the home link connector using the do it yourself listed by the "" guy but as soon as I opened the sun roof motor cover the connector that was up in there did not have the green 12V wire that I need. The connector in my car is black and has 3 wire coming out of it, a yellow, black, and a clear plastic covered looking one. When I look at the pictures listed on madrussian's website I see a "whitefish" connected with a light blue, dark blue, green, and red wire. Am I missing a wire or something? I checked each of the wires for 12V but no dice. SO I checked the garage door fuse and it also looks ok.

Now the question is, is my connector the WRONG connector since it doesn't have 4 wires connecting to it?
Is this the right connector, but for some reason the wire is not "hooked" up to carry the 12V?

Does anyone see any problems if I hardwired it into the front-overhead light (red/white wire)? I got a 12V reading out of it, but I'm not sure if there would be issues with that later on (blowing a fuse or something... I dunno). the light connector is picture ending in 889.

What would you do? (This is a 2000 BMW 323CI)

Sorry about the crappy photos... my digital camera is ancient.

Thanks guys,
