RGB SCART lead for 360 slim?

I've just got an Xbox360 250GB slim for now I'm connecting it to an old CRT TV using SCART.

I ordered a Madcatz RGB SCART cable with optical cable from a Play trader but having tried to connect it up the xbox end is too fat to fit in the back of the xbox.

There is a part of the rear casing that seems custom made to prevent you connecting anything fatter than the composite lead that came with the console.

Can anyone recommend an RGB lead that will fit in the back of a 250GB slim?

Many thanks!

FWIW I took a couple of photos of the xbox 360 slim end of the cable to show to the supplier.

Tried Game, Gamestation, HMV and the fella on the market and got the same baffled looks about wanting a SCART lead :D Seems everyone else has gone HD but me.

[Edit]
I've picked up a Logic3 RGB SCART cable from Maplin (£16.49) which is much slimmer and fits
It has a switch to go between the octopus of s-video with analogue audio or the SCART connection.
That baffled me when the TV didn't see anything on the SCART socket until I flicked it over - now the TV auto selects and the picture is MUCH much better.
