    Don't see why not, both the iPod/USB adapter are consoles located in the glove compartment so must be an AUX in type connection round the back. I hope so as I haven't specified it on my new car but might have it retro fitted.

    Do a search on the ICe forum part, there quite a few articels. The most popular interface is the Dension one for connecting up your ipod. They use the CD player interface and you control the iPod as a multichanger. There's some other options as well for connecting up a memory stick for example.

    Works just fine for me.

    The problem is if you do many miles you have to keep changing the broadcast frequency of these iTrip type things due to our overcrowded airwaves.
    Go for either the Audi ipod adaptor or the Dension one.

    FM modulators suck, stay well clear.

    That looks great.
    Is it easy to route the cable down from the console, and out behind the handbrake into the armrest?

    Halfords do an adapter which is an almost identical, plug in jobby.
    Made by Connect2 and costs 49.99.
    I've recently fitted one to connect my Tomtom 910 MP3 player & handsfree kit.
    Took me about 30mins to fit the adapter and about another hour to tidy the wiring up.
