I purchased my fourth Jetta, and third VW diesel back in August - a White 2006 TDI, and thus began the process of getting intimately familiar (and falling deeper in love,) with yet andother VW. I've since already placed another 11K miles on it, performed the 10K service (had difficulties finding the right fuel filter and such.) Got the Ross-Tech HEX+CAN cable right off, have added fog lights (found the info on this site helpful.)

Previous VW's - Found an '86 Jetta GL in Portland, Or in May of '06 with working AC and 318K miles on a 1.8 Litre gas motor. Took the motor out and sold it on carigslist, and found a 1.6 TD motor in a crate from Germany with 45K miles on it. I've since put another 50K on that car. Updated stereo, speakers, lighting, suspension, etc. Smells like diesel, so my bride-to-be let me get a newer TDI that doesn't smell! WooHoo!

Anyways - Today I'm thinking about updating the GPS satelite radio with newer software, possibly add an Ipod adapter. The radio has the external CD-changer - neither the changer or the head unit play mp3 disks. The unit does have an AUX input selection in the tuner selections. Anyone know if this works with the CD changer installed?

Do you have the OEM MFD2? I just added an ipod adapter and am pretty happy with it.

First read this: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/multi/vw-ipod-cable-aux-in.htm

I don't think I've added this info yet:
I ended up getting an aux-in off ebay with the ipod cable end instead of a 3.5mm jack. It works great and it charges the newer 5v ipods BUT I couldn't find switched power and was getting a lot of bad ground noise so I just forgot it. If you clean up the ground and find switched power it'll charge the ipod too. I tested with permanent 12V and it works. You have to manually control the ipod but vs. a 3.5mm jack adapter you don't have to turn up the volume all the way on the ipod.

It's plug-play and it keeps the CD changer.
