  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday.

Keep in mind my email is admin@ferrarichat.com if you do have access problems after Wednesday. Thanks!

    I would like to know too...however, on my 06 430, there is a SD SLOT behind the face plate...which is almost as equal to an iPod.

    it takes @ 1 hr or so / the radio comes out of the dash the cd changer gets unplugged and the ipod interface plugs into the same port the cdc was plugged into....Next the ipod cable need to be routed to the back of the glovebox and then the ipod cable needs to be run into the glove compartment and normally a hole has to be made to get it into the compartment. I use a 1.25 inch diameter hole with a plastic grommet to fill the hole. The interface can be aquired from Becker http://www.beckerautosound.com/ if they have it in stock it if not I have 1 left...

    There's several picture threads covering this modification over the years - try a search on '360 ipod'

    FYI, you do NOT have to remove the radio to plug in the ipod cable.

    I got a flashlight and got down under the dash on the driver side floor and from there, I could see the CD changer plug and unplug it and snap the ipod cable in

    Step 1. Purchase the ipod cable from Becker
    Step 2. Install in 5 minutes

    viola!
