I used the original I6 cable, then picked up a kit from AZ that has the little barral connectors to stake the end.

I got the Lokar Stainless Braided Cable. Its a universal 24 inch that I cut down to the size I needed (still had over 12 inches left). More$$ but looks cool and will last. I'd been driving around with a jimmie-rigged cable for too long. You can find them for around $30 on ebay.
