I would love the aux port but iffy about pulling my baby apart! :-) I have been debating about having the dealership do it, they wanted $250 for cable, installation and coding. Sadly, I don't have an indy in my area I trust.
Gotcha--yeah some of the plastic parts can be a little iffy on getting them out in one piece if they haven't been removed in a while. The wood trim across the dash is also tough to get started without chipping any corners or anything

I hate to say it, but if they'd come down to more like $200 I'd probably let them do it
