Your vehicle most likely came with a factory amplifier, some aftermarket stereos are not compatible with the amplifier because it uses fiber optics for the sound, you will either have to get a compatible stereo or find a suitable adapter from a high end stereo shop that specializes in European applications. Please accept my answer, if you have any further questions I will answer them until you are completely satisfied with my answers.

No, you will have to locate a high end stereo shop in your area that specializes in European applications.
