Its a good thing we have created a separate forum category for "in car entertainment" discussions. Something tells me that section is going to explore with over-capacity!!

Welcome aboard AutoPhile

3. For factory OEM headunits there are lot of adapters available in the international market for various cars.

Its just that which way one wants to go.

I am getting Clarion EA1251 for Clarion HX-D2.

Keep you guys updated.

Cant we also use an FM adaptor for the iPODs like those available from Griffin technologies? This would eliminate wiring, but am not sure if the FM stereo quality would be comparable with the wired variety...

Most of my friends use an i-Trip for FM transmission and yes you do have a quality drop. for a stock mysic setup it would be alright i guess, but not really a sloution for a high end setup.

i go an itrip too. dont use it except for fun. much prefered a wired setup via a HU specific wire so the Hu can control the ipod. in any case the object here is not wiring but install locations.

Why not just in that open space below the HU???

If you place it in the tray under the wheel, what'll you do when you're in the back seat? The RS has a rear centre armrest, that would be a cool place to mount it, if you can sort out the wiring!

Welcome A4,

The problem you are facing is very common. Especially in old cars.

It occurs because of ground differential in the wiring. I will be pleased to help you out. Will send you my details in PM. Kindly free your space in PM.

Cheers
