You just modify your own plug. All you do is add 2 or 3 wires, not hard.
If you have a gli I think its a bit harder though. theres a tech doc on it.

If you've got no clock, then you're gonna need the plug. I'd try and find one with the plug (I've seen plenty on ebay with them) as you'll find it hard to find anyone willing to sell it seperately.

Hey don't mean to hijack the thread but anyone able to tell me how to set the clock on it? it has set flashing but I can't seem to set it.
