Do you have to drill holes in glove box to get cable from glove box then into holder under heater.can't feel any open space?I did the iPod connection but did notbother with the drawer since I would lose a cup holder. I fitted mine so that the box is In the glove box and the iPod sits in the cubby hole under the heater controls. This works perfectly and the easiest way to do this is to take the glove box out to gain access. (you can then feed the wires from the back of the sterio straight through to the glove box area.) You can then pass the iPod connecting wire out of the bottom rightcorner of the glovebox and into the side ofthe console through a joint in the plastic. Nice and easy (30 mins) and sitll have my cup holders! Oh and no lose wires either!
I have the xcarlink on my 147 connected to the back of the head unit through blue cd changer plug. Ipod is controlled through radio and steering wheel buttons. Charges both older ipods as well as iphone and itouches.How much is this lead? Also does it give you full connectivity??
