    Hello,
    I am looking for suggestions on an auxiliary input to install so I can interface my iPod with the stereo. I am very tired of dealing with the FM modulator devices.
    Prefer something I might could install myself or would be up for something a shop might install for a "reasonable" amount.
    I have been pondering a device from Bavarian Auto - item# 82 11 0 153 367. Nice price and looks relatively easy to install. Not too crazy about the input being in the glove box, but I could live with that.
    Just wondering if anyone else has installed anything or has any suggestions.
    Thanks a bunch!

    Looks to me like that might solve your problem - Bavauto mentions the glove box, but you ought to be able to install it anyplace you can route it to, although it might take removing, reinstalling and/or somewhat modifying some interior trim pieces.

    Thanks!
    Yep, I was looking at the center console to see if there was any place there. Will have to put some thought into this one.
