Did you check the vin number on say the Vin Decoder to see whether it's really 2010? My understanding was that all 2010 vehicles (2010 MY are made in 2009) have CIC.

- How difficult was this task? What did you order? Do you have any pictures?

Not difficult at all. Rosinc has how to videos and Aux cable for purchase. If I were doing it over, I wouldn't drill the Aux hole in/on the DSC panel. I'd drill it in the glove box and route the cable out. I bought the shown BT board.

If you don't want to tap into the wires and you aren't using both cigarette lighters, you could disconnect the wires from one of them, clip/strip the ends, and solder those on.

The only limitation with this location is that the cigarette lighters are not powered unless the engine is running - they do not work when just the ignition is on. This is a slight annoyance because you can't be sitting in the car listening with the car off - the engine has to be idling for this to work. You'd have to tap into 12v wiring that is hot with just the ingnition on to get past this limitation.
This!!!
The rear Aux port allows this and I want this to continue AFTER installing BT board back here. How do I connect (to a power source) to allow car off accessories on music listening??
