    Ipods, MP3 Players and ICE (8G)
    Hi I have the 2006 2.2 civic EX. In the arm rest is the multi CD changer.

    I bought and installed a Xcarlink in my 2008 hatchback. I bought it from this store because it was cheaper than on the xcarlink.co.uk site: Honda Wireless Bluetooth Streaming Handsfree Interface. The site seems legit so I assume it's a genuine Xcarlink unit. Being able to control Spotify from...
