I know it sounds crazy, but worth a try. Has anyone fitted a USB port to the factory head unit, so that you can play music.
Is the bluetooth system that allows you to connect your phone for the calls; cant that be used to play music via the headunit.

Just was looking at brochures and see from November 2008 that there was a audio jack socket in the armrest console for MP3 aux. How irritating as mine is an early 2008. Has anyone retrofit this?

I would give it a try to look to see if the wiring is there. Although I guess I would have to change the headunit as the button has CD, I have checked some of the same thing from later models but which has the button as CD/AUX. It would be good if the wire is there. I would possibly have a check tommorow.

I have checked over the wiring in the armrest and there is no additional wire. I have realised my headunit has the standard [CD] button, not like the newer ones from late 2008 with the [CD/AUX] button. I guess they did not pre-wire it as mentioned above, what a shame though.
I have noticed another wire like what another poster had put, but this has 3 pin. the wires to this connector is red, black, red/silver dashes. Not sure if that was meant to be for a rear cigar lighter, I would check it tomorrow for voltage status, was getting late and cold.
I pulled out the cupholder part and the back wall from armrest from rear passenger footwell.
