    If the car has an audio jack then you're good.

    I don't believe mine does. What's a good one to purchase?

    A good car to purchase? for an ipod? probably BMW I think some of them have ipod docs built in.

    Did you see what I did? I made fun of your poorly worded sentence, it was fun.

    You can hook an ipod up to any car stereo, there are various methods with varying sound quality, the following list is worst to best

    wireless FM transmitter
    wireless bluetooth
    cassette adapter
    wired FM (these are the units that plug inline to the antenna)
    line in (either 3.5mm or rca)
    ipod doc connector

    If you are looking for an aftermarket stereo then that is all preference and doing research on different models. I personally prefer KENWOOD and ALPINE.

    I've got a problem with my car too - It has no AUX jack, and no cassette player. Seems like the only way to listen to the music is through an FM transmitter but like Sick said, they're not cheap. And I heard the sound quality isn't exactly greeat. That's a big problem for me.

    The best thing to do is to go for a Kenwood system where the head-unit comes with an Aux slot (since you're a Kenwood fan, my own preference is Sony Xplod though!)...

    The cable should be quite cheap, just connect one end to the Aux slot and the other to your iPod... Once this is done, your iPod is ready for playback through the car speakers!
