Bumping an old thread. I installed this in 2009 by following OBXT's walkthrough - not nearly as nicely done, but it's been functional.
I don't recommend putting an iPod wire through the center console, because it can't lay flat. After a few years of abuse in the center console, one of the solder points in mine broke. After resoldering I moved the cable to the glove box and will give it a try there. You can see the original hole in the console, and the connector itself is still bent.
I notched a small hole between the shift boot and the console to fit the wire for the controller. Otherwise, all modifications will be pretty invisible when I eventually remove it and replace the head unit.
