I have a 2002 Mini Cooper Auto which only has CD and Radio. I am interested in installing some sort of aux cable to it so that I can connect devices with a 3.5mm headphone jack, i.e. iPhones, phones, laptops, etc and the audio will play through the speakers.
Not very technical at all, so please forgive my ignorance.
Just after general advice (can it, can't it be done?) and roughly how much these types of works cost (£)?
I installed AUX on my 2003 Cooper S. If you have the right radio (check with MINI) then MINI will sell you a cable that you just plug in on the back of the radio and route to where you want the AUX plug. The cable has a little plate on the end with the AUX jack.
It was fiddly, but it only took half an hour or so and you just have to drill one hole in some trim somewhere. I think the instructions pointed you to the glove box, but I put mine in the plastic trim that's against the bulkhead/firewall behind the cup holders and gear stick.
