iPod Cable/music cutting out?

Anyone else having issues with their iPod cable that came with the car?

I just started noticing this a few weeks back but if I have the stereo going from the iPod in the arm rest, and I either open/close the arm rest, or put to much pressure on the right spot, or bump it the music will cut out.

I've narrowed it down to the cable and where it connects to the car. It seems as firm as it can be, but still slightly loose.

Wondering if anyone else has experinced this. It's not the end of the world and doesn't happen that offten but when it does it's annouying.

Is there any place that sells higher quality versions of this cable? Thought I'd ask but expect no since it's a rather speciality item.

i have the same thing
its not a great design as it always gets too bent when you close the arm rest
my audio mini plug is the one that cuts out sometimes

Same thing happens to me. I noticed the cable is very sensitive to bending. If only one side of the speakers are on ill just bend the wire a bit an its fine. Kinda crappy though..
