I agree with Oofie. I use my iPod with the Aux port and although it would certainly be nice to control it via the steering wheel and see the tracks, it is still much better than no iPod at all.
You should search the audio thread, as some members have come up with some nice creative solutions. My favorite is the remote attached to the hand brake lever. If it were painted black, that would be pretty good.
I think it is bad luck to be superstitious
