Found that link:

Though re-reading it, it does involve cutting cables and soldering in new lengths. I'm never entirely happy doing that to something that's still under warranty, which your Parrot kit obviously would be if you'd only just bought it.

I'd investigate the possibility of official extension cables from Parrot first, and go with this option as a last resort.

The "Prewire" reference in the Espace notes is probably for cars that are pre-wired for hands-free. It's hard to tell at the resolution they give you, but the connector on one of the extension cables that they show looks right too.

As your Lag is an Intiale, it should have this feature too. There's a small (yellow, I think) connector inside the centre console (to remove the panel,just detach the gaiters around the gear lever and handbrake, lift up the centre arm rest, grab hold of the centre console top panel and pull!) The Parrot kit may well be able to use the car's built in microphone with these adapter leads, though I never managed to get the one in my last car to work.
Currently in Horatio's garage:
