Several options depending on your budget. Double DIN Pioneer with kit can give you a modern bluetooth interface, XM, sat nav, etc.  On the other end there are adapters. How deep are you wanting to go? Browse a crutchfields web site to see some kits and prices for the former.

Thanks Mike. I've used parrot- type devices in cars before, with relative success. But never in a convertible. I'll do some looking around, but don't want to reinvent the wheel, only to start with a square one, haha.

I had a double din Kenwood with nav installed. Microphone placement is the issue.

 

When the unit was first installed they put the mic just behind the steering wheel on top of the shroud. In this location the mic suffered quite a bit of wind noise. I got some fake fur from a fabric store and this pretty much cured the wind problem, however, I wasn't too keen on the look of it.

 

I moved the mic to the stock microphone location on the left of the instrument cluster. It works pretty well, but since it's pretty tight inside the mic picks up some bump noise, vibrations transferred through the chassis into the dash. I don't take many calls while driving my toy so it works ok enough. It's definitely not as good as the 2009 and up stock systems!

I bought a bluetooth radio transmitter called the Anker Roav SmartCharge. Cost me about $76 CAD. Works like a charm with very clear sound, as long as you install the app and select Enhance sound in the settings. This is the cheapest way I could find to modernize the car a bit.
