Thumbs up

Hey all,

My 2002 325i with Business CD is prewired for CD changer in the trunk. My USA SPEC iPod Interface (from Crutchfield) plugs into the two female plugs on the trunk cable, but that leaves my iPod in the trunk. I'd like to plug the iPod Interface directly into the back of the head unit and keep my iPod in the cabin. Does the HU have those same two female plugs on the back, or do I have to get some sort of converter.

Another way to ask the question: Does the CD changer cable simply 'extend' those two female ports to the trunk?

Thanks for any help. I haven't gotten brave enough to yank the HU and look for myself yet.

No, the back of the business radio will not help you. I think your best option is to obtain a long extention and run it up to the front of the car.

Yeah, I ran across a picture of it in another thread on this board and realized I couldn't make it happen. The cable that came with the unit is plenty long enough to reach inside the cabin...now I just have to decide the best way to route it.

Thanks for your help, though!
