Default Adapters to install HD Radio in 2008 Saab 9-5

I have a JVC #KT-HDPK1 High Definition Radio adapter and "professional" installation kit. What cable adapters will be necessary to connect this HD Radio to the head unit in my 2008 Saab 9-5?

Particularly, what connector is necessary to intercept the radio antenna feed behind the car's head unit and feed a signal to the HD Radio?

Most of the rest I think I can determine myself, but a pre-made wiring loom would sure be nice!

I found the adapters at the local car stereo specialty store.

Scosche #VWA3B - Will adapt the 2006-2009 Saab 9-5 antenna cable to a standard DIN male antenna plug.

Scosche #VWA3RB - Will adapt a standard DIN male plug (on the normal US market antenna cable) to fit the 2006 to 2009 Saab 9-5 radio.

Neither of these products are shown in the Scosche catalog as fitting a Saab 9-5, but they do.

Your antenna adapters work great!

My car is a 2008 so I assume the adapters will fit all 2006 thru 2009 models with the "GM" radio.
