    I got mine a while back from a VW dealer in Conneticut - VW of Westhartford. They were advertising on ebay at the time but I got in contact with them via email and arranged the purchase through ebay - in all after them supplying the round pin ended cable to suit an Audi installation, import duty/taxes and delivery it cost me about 170 for a 20gb model which is much cheaper than the 560 your local Audi dealer over here would ask you to cough up!

    There was another US based site called Clairparts who also had them at that time if you have no joy with VWoWH.

    Email him and if you buy the phatbox out of ebay he will give you a better price

    TY Simon, I actually emailed Craigyb yesterday as I`m not far from him, but as of yet he hasn`t got back to me.

    You were right. I`ve just received an email from him. Unfortunately, he hasn`t got any phatboxs at present. Oh well, the search goes on.....

    A few of us have bought from mikanmotors on ebay. Delivered for around £135 from the US.

    If you search through this forum, you will find a link to him.

    I'll more than likely be going down the Phatbox route too if may latest little project doesn't work out. I've found an adapter that the manufacturer reckons will allow me to control my Sony NW-HD3 from the Concert II H/U but I'm not hopeful. They reckon it will work like the Dension for the iPod but I don't believe a word of it. I could be pleasantly suprised though...
