Wanting to install a up to date stereo in this 1996 Jag XJ12. Of course none of the radio connections match up with the new stereos. Has anyone updated their XJ12 stereo/radio? if nothing else has anyone direct wired a IPod connection to the original radio? Any help is appreciated.

thanks, that more information than I currently have. I know there is a way (I hope) to upgrade it somehow. Hopefully another member has done it in the past. Just want to be able to plug IPod in direct, the cassette hook up for IPod doesn't work as good as the direct plug in.

Thanks for your response!
