    Depends on if its been spec'd & the year, any post late 06 head unit is capable of being fitted with one oem style, any pre late 06 needs aftermarket auxin solution, I wouldn't worry as its not hugely expensive to fit one.

    If you do need one fitted, give us a shout as we supply/fit most of the oem technology for these cars.

    I've found with my AUX port you need to have the iPod volume cranked to the max to get a decent sound at 'normal' levels, which means it drains the iPod battery very quick.

    Id say look at the Xcarlink stuff, they allow iPod to be plug into the standard head unit and still charge the ipod at the same time.

    Just had a look at these on eBay, They look good but do you need the whole unit?

    TBH depends on the handset or player if the line levels are less.
