Mp3 player options in BA XR6T or GT?

Just a quick question - I was wondering if the premium sound head unit can play Mp3's?

If not - has anyone investigated the options to facilitate playing Mp3's without major re-wiring?

You can buy a kit from Ford that places a connector in the bin under the tissue box slot to allow you to connect MP3 players and play through the car's sound system. It's $65 RRP fitted, or around $40 and fit yourself (easy enough).

BA GT #0909 - Manual, Citric Acid, Stripes, Sunroof, Premium sound, FPV Steering wheel and Mats.

GT 0909, Can I ask what type of connector is it? (USB, RCA's)

Would this also apply to the Premium Sound System in the Ford Territory?

Cheers

I'm pretty sure it's a 3.5mm socket wired stereo

Re: Mp3 player options in BA XR6T or GT?

Thanks heaps for the replies guys. :)

Don't get me wrong, love the fords - but isn't it a bit lame in todays 'day in age' that for a $1000 'premium sound' upgrade you don't get the ability to read mp3 disks, something you could get in a vast number of $300 aftermarket head units.

Anyway - rant over.
