Ken, you suggested what sounds like an excellent soluton for the Ipod audio issue. Could you provide better details on how to contact the person you refer to? I have a Subie Forester XT 2004 and I hope that the same solution would work for the original Tuner/CD changer in my car.

Thanks, unfortunately it does not look like it will work on a Forrester. Here is clip from first post in the above referenced sticky post from the creator of the mod:
Will this work on other Subaru's? YES. This will work on WRX/Impreza/Outback Sports. As far as I know, it will not work in Bajas, Forester or Tribeca's. It will not work for any years but 2005 & 2006. This mod is only for 05/06 Subaru Legacy's, Outbacks (2.5L & 3.0L), and Outback Sport/Impreza & WRX's with 6CD radios (P-133).
Will this work on non-US radios? Yes, it will work with Canadian radios. It will not work in the McIntosh radio, and it will not work in the standard radio with single zone metric climate controls (C instead of F) - European, Japanese, Australian, etc...sorry. I wish it did.

Try going to ScoobyMods.com. There's a modification shown on integrating an iPod for a Forester XT.

Ken thanks so much for the reference to this forum http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3357
the solution for the Forester XT seems similar to the Legacy and uses a blank/silent CD as well. Some cost in parts and a few solders, but seems like it is a fairly easy project. The URL above seems to have good instructions as well as photos.
Now all I need is for the Ipod (my first)that I just purchased to actually work, but that is a different story.

Anyone know how difficult it is to add XM to a pre wired system, or should you go through a dealer? I did the wiring for XM on my Jeep I traded off and am hooked on it.
Thanks in advance

The 07s have aux input, do you have an output?

I have a Delphi receiver but the Subaru has a Sat ready radio installed, the dealer quoted me $495 to install the modules to activate, seems a bit much so I was wondering how hard it would be to do myself.

Yikes. That's a lot.
What about the place you got the Delphi thing from? Will they install it again? Or was it mail order?
