I have one of THESE which is essentially the same as the xcarlink usb box. They do a ipod version too which is a couple of quid more.

I have mine in the cubby hole above the gear stick and had to cut a hole in it. If you are fitting it in the armrest then there is a blanking cap that you can feed the wires through.

They are plug and play but I had difficulty removing the top panel above the stereo. In the end I abandoned removing it and I was able to reach around and plug it in without removing the stereo.

As long as you have a firm but gentle touch for removing the panels without snapping the clips then you should be fine.
There is a nice howto HERE
