Installing Rearview Mirror with Map Lights... Wiring Question

I wanted to replace my stock rearview mirror on my LS with an auto dimming rearview mirror with map lights from an ss Model... How do I hook it up? Is there wiring already in place for it or do you need to do all of that youself... If there is a wire for it in place, where is it?

So you have the LS model too and the wiring for the locks and windows is already in the car as well? Cuz I was thinking of adding those too.

The mirror map lights were on cars with the sunroof. Your wires for the light are run to the dome light. You can tap into those.
