Default 2001-2006 Volvo IPOD Adapter: $50 less than Volvo.us price

Has anyone purchased the Volvo Ipod Adapter? I am looking into purchasing it, and I have found a good price, but I have two questions. . .

How difficult does this install look to you guys?

And also, it is not compatible with the HU650 radio -- how can I tell which one I have? It's a 2001 S60 2.4T, with "premium" audio package. This is my radio:

# VOLVO
S40/V40 01 - 04
S60/S80 01 - 05*
S70/XC70 01 - 05*

* Will not work with HU650 radio. Do not use OEM pre-wired cable.

Thanks fire.

BTW: If you look in that picture, you can easily make out HU-613. I guess it was darker in the car without the camera flash (I'm an idiot).

I ordered this from crutchfield.com for a big savings over the volvo.us price.

Volvo wanted $150. Crutchfield wanted $120, and I used coupon PA166 to get $20 off and free shipping. $106 shipped after tax.

It should show up today!

YEs, and they just came out with a Bluetooth adapter too!

Install on the Ipod adapter was a breeze. It only got tricky when angling out the Climate Control unit. Once this and the radio were removed, I cut back the rubber on the red constant power lead for the radio, spliced in the yellow power cable, plugged in the cd-changer input, and then put everything back in place.

Charges the ipod, allows me to control it via the steering wheel and head unit controls, and the sound quality is impeccable.

I posted this in another thread, but I used Crutchfield.com coupon PA166 for $20 off and free shipping to purchase this for $100 shipped rather than volvo.us' $150 + shipping.
