    Default iPod touch fitting

    Guys, I'm getting a free iPod touch 8GB (thanks to generous SKY tv), and looking to fit that onto my Vectra.

    It's a black 2007 Vectra 1.8 Exclusive, and has go CD30 - it does not play mp3 cd's and has NO aux input either - hence the pain and the decision to fit iPod touch. See current system image in below link, I'm hoping to do a blog with the conversion procedure, so other members can use it as a resource, and offcourse for my self satisfaction too !

    I'm not too-fussed about the steering wheel controls (will have it if it does not add to more than 15% of the total cost otherwise)

    What I'm not sure and need your help with is what kit do I need to buy, I've read several posts on the forum, and there seems to be so many ways of doing it. Parrot kit seems to be popular, but I'm not looking into spending that kind of money. I would ideally prefer to get an AUX input connected and use the iPod touch interface for controls etc -

    Also I would be interested in fitting an iPod Touch charger system that does not use up my ciggy-lighter socket in the dash

    Please help guys and thank you very much in advance - even if you guys can just provide links to posts who have done this before that should be sufficient.

    Cheers

    Just want to add to the above, I'm not looking for any FM related solutions either, I'm an audio buff and any dissorting will really upset me - I believe when you can wire it, better wire it (I'm into computer networks for my living)

    Cheers

    the best option despite saying you dont want to spend that sort of money is parrot mki series - at least you can have a car kit as well as ipod connectivity and if you go for the mki9000 - (no display) you should be able to pick one up for under £100
