Also I want less cables cluttering the interior, so a BT dongle by Bluemusic was purchased and fitted in place. It replaces the 6cd changer which nobody uses anyway, but still allows you to play a CD through the headunit itself.
Curious, would this work with a 'standard' stock unit without nav and without CD changer present? Cause I've been looking into adding an AUX port, but using BT would be a lot nicer of course!
As far as I am aware no, as it uses the connectors that are for the CD Changer. That said apparently cars without CD Changers have the loom there pre-installed already, in case you wanted to retrofit one. If that is the case and not just a rumour, have a check and if it's present you can grab one of these adapters :)

There is a version of the BlueMusic that plugs in directly to back of the head unit.
I have that one, since my car didn’t have CD charger or the option preparation for CD changer (the cables).
