Bluetooth input with OEM headunit?

Hi everyone.

I am wondering if any of you have aver managed to play music from your phone through the head unit in your car, and by what means?

I've found this on eBay, but it is a wired AUX connection, which I could settle for, but bluetooth would be that bit better.

The 10 disc changer in the boot is definitely a good thing to have, but I suffered a breakdown puncture the other day and was left with no spare wheel or tools.
This gives me another question while I'm here, if I buy this will it fit inside a GTA teledial and then into the wheel well in the boot (having removed the CD changer?

Thanks, Sam

Look for a compatible XCarLink box. Plugs into the same port as the Connects2 box, but allows A2DP Bluetooth audio playback.. I believe also lets you use the steering wheel controls to shuffle etc.

I have that Connects2 box in my GT with the stock Blaupunkt head unit, works fine but I would definitely go for the XCarLink if I were buying again.
