Is there anyway you can put in an aux cord to play the ipod etc without buying some sort of kit? I am tired of using the cassette to ipod adapter as my cassette player is out of alignment or something.
I spent $450 on a double din headunit (I care way too much about SQ ). But you could easily buy a single din HU for under $100 that sounds decent. vAnd nowadays aux is pretty much a standard. Mine has a USB port and all that jazz too.

Forge 007, GHL 3" TB, EuroJet TIP, drive/pass Raxles, ECS Hybrid Oil pan, Samco coolant hoses, P-flo SRI, VR6 Lightweight single mass clutch, Ultimo's, etc. -R.I.P. sold to an uncaring new owner, and destroyed by said owner within 2 weeks.
I ended up disassembling the whole headunit to find some conveniently labeled points where I could solder a 20ft headphone cord and extend it all the way under the center console and up into the armrest. Not sure if this applies to all headunits, I just had the standard unit from a 2001 GLS.

Yes there is a way to do it
Buy this from ebay:
or this one:
Pull the radio and replace the cd changer plug with the one in the picture above.
Route the cable however you want to.
I chose to get one of these (3.5mm bulkhead female-to-female adapters and run that 3.5mm plug into the back and have a shorter cable plug in and out of the front)and mount to mount it on my dash somewhere but never got around to it:
I also got myself a panavise dash mount and iPod/iPhone holder:
I have a USA-Spec. I select playlists from my iPod and can change songs from the headunit. It can also be set up to act like a CD changer where you have 5 or 6 playlists you can select as if they were CD's in your CD changer. It's kinda pricey though.
I'm not a big fan of aftermarket head units. After 16 years of big stereos I found that I usually just ended up with a broken window and no radio. After losing thousands of dollars in stereo equipment I started sticking with OEM. I do want a Kenwood touch screen navi unit though.
