    ipod connection to oem stereo

    im getting sick of having to keep changing cd's buy going to the back of my s3 and changing 6 cd's at a time in the old changer so have been thinking of getting an ipod and connecting it to the std stereo i think its sympthony 1 system as its a 2000 pre facelift s3?? is this possibly to connect up?? as i dont really want to be changing stereo aswell i like the oem feel in side the car so if its not possible is there a decent stereo that looks oem??

    cheers kev

    Yes, just buy an xcarlink or Dension ICELink, this plugs into the changer input and fools the HU into thinking a changer is connected.

    just been looking into this i like the xcarlink one as it retains the use of the std cd changer and also has an option for bluetooth connection for handsfree car which is another thing ive been looking at getting,

    would this be the kit im after http://www.xcarlink.co.uk/product.ph...6&cat=4&page=1

    cheers again
