    No the cables wont be there if not fitted already & glovebox will need changing to fit the unit into the correct socket.

    The glovebox has two small compartments at the top next to the airbag switch so won't it fit in one of them?

    What would the cost be and where are you located?
    could the interface be located anywhere?

    I've just today, having had my car for a week or two, plugged an iPod nano in to the iPod interface in my glove box and its awful. Music sounds flat and there's a feint hiss as well. Not sure if that's normal, but connecting my iPhone via aux in is a million times better.

    Could be a issue with few things as they're normally ok for sound, is it running plugged in direct or through an adapter cable.

    Hello sir!

    It's a direct connection. I did think it a bit odd, but it does sound truly naff compared to the iPhone via aux in. Maybe the iPod is knackered!

    Have you got access to a ipod dock audio system or another ipod to test with?

    I'll plug the iPod in my home cinema amp and see how that sounds. I do have a Bose sound dock but it's not got the 'fullest' sound so may not be a good indication of quality.
