You may run into difficulty finding pre outs for an amp as the stereo is in two parts, the in dash unit and a second box in the boot. This is where the AUX/Line in input is, the speaker outs and tuner/amplifier.

I have spoken to dealers who reckon they can replace the stereo completely but it is a pretty major job if you want to keep the sat nav (if you have it) and the screen.

You can use an amp with high level inputs or fit high/low converters to step down the speaker outputs to line level.

An advantage of the setup is that the speaker connections and a switched live line are in the boot already.

Hope this helps

Good luck!
