Madness 147 stereo upgrade

I have been looking for a way to have a new head unit and link it with steering wheel controls but it just all seems complicated so instead i have researched and found that i can have an aux cable plugged in to the cd changer bit behind the head unit ,where can i get these cables? If you have any suggestions as well please let me know i just want to be able to use an ipod as well as the steering wheel controls...

just be aware that it's hit or miss whether these cables work (dependant on firmware radio), and at very minimum it will need to be modified.....

actually it's quite easy. I did the exact same thing.
I bought this........


pulled out the stereo and replaced the blanked blue plug next to the yellow one and replaced with this.
I ran the wires down through the back of the console and out through the ashtray.
The steering wheels work with an ipod using that connection but not an adroid using a standard aux in.
