Hello, and welcome to Just Answer, I'm happy to help you here.
This particular style of radio is a modified fit to your vehicle, so the installation is not something that is an easy pull out and swap. It can be done but will require some tools and patience.
For the parts you would need there will be a link below with a list of accessories.
In that list you will need the following.
-Both iPod adapters
-Sirius radio adapter
-HD radio adapter
-The PAC steering wheel interface
is that it
-Recommended, Professional installation in your area.
what do you mean both ipod adapters
For an untrained individual a car stereo with all of these features, along with an amplifier, can take a lot of patience and the better part of a day figuring things out. Along with that there is not a wiring harness adapter for this style of vehicle, so the existing harness needs to be modified to accept the new Sony unit.
For the amplifier installation you'll need the following kit.

This amplifier is only two channels, while your vehicle can have between 4-6 speakers based on the model and radio style, so the amplifier would be placed under a heavy load. A four channel amplifier would be a better fit for this application, but yours will work.
If you have any other questions on this just let me know. If you found this information helpful the select the ACCEPT button.

I just saw your responses. The first iPod adapter will allow you to play videos on your iPod over the main screen. The second adapter will just allow audio only. If your not worried about iPod videos, then just buy the 2nd adapter.I also noticed that this Sony model has been discontinued, so if you can't find it anymore I would recommend the Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD model as a good replacement.
