Looking for a Good Ground

Hi

I have a 1997 D90 and I am adding heated seats for the winter. I have the seat elements in and I have run the wires into the tuffy box and then forward through the center console up to the fuse box. There is a screw to the right of the fuse box that looks like its meant to be a ground. Do any of you fine folks know for sure if it is a ground? Also any suggestions for where I should pull power? There are two 20 amp "AUX" fuses that I'm thinking I should tap.

Thanks

Can always add in an aux fuse box, and take the power plus do the ground right at the battery.

Thanks guys. I am looking to set my seat heaters on switched power. I fear that I will accidently leave one of the seat heaters on and drain the battery if I go direct to the battery. The screw I am referring to is directly to the right of the fuse area and is in the metal casing the surrounds the fuse box. I'm hoping this is a ground and the AUX fuses will work as good taps. I guess I'll have to try it out.
