Default Flush mount USB socket?

Hey guys, I am on the hunt for a flush mount USB port. Anyone seen that sort of thing and know where I can get one? I have a USB lead coming from the back of my radio, and currently have an ipod lead plugged into it and then run into the center console thru the rear opening where the trunk and fuel door handles are. But I would like a cleaner solution. What I would ideally like is a female USB port that will mount to the plastic at the front wall of the center console. A bit like a cigarette lighter socket. Anyone know where such an item can be found? I have searched ebay but come up with nothing but a few really ugly metal ones meant for computers.

Any ideas?

anyone seen something stock on a new car that I could but and adapt for use?

Bearing in mind I am in England so anything from the big three is unobtainable to me.

This one is not so flush, but I kind of like it.

Well on that front wall of the center console bin I already have a Launch control toggle switch, the button and LEd for the LC-1 and another toggle to deactivate them, and the relocated ciggy lighter socket (orig. hole has a starter button in it {I know, I'm 12, gay, and should go back to cr.net where I belong}). so I don't think that thing would fit with the little door on it. Tempting though as the door would stop stuff from getting in there and gumming up the plug.

I have ordered one of these

It was 2 pounds delivered so I will dick with it and see if I can make it work, but I would rather something that had a small trim plate as I am going to have to just cut a square hole and line it up this way.

I know I am being finicky, but if you don't ask......
