I put mine here as well. It is not only extremely clean (looks factory), but easy to run the aux input wire to this location. The hardest part is taking the button panel apart. I just cut out the back with a dremel, then used a dremel cone shaped bit to drill the hole (I didn't have a proper drill bit set). I just measured the aux input with calipers and measured the dremel bit and found it was perfect. This is by far the best location. You could maybe put it in the back of the tray under the armrest also. I would NOT put the input in a vertical orientation. This is just asking for **** to get in the hole.
