XM Commander installed in my 2001 GTS

I just wanted to share my XM radio install with everybody in case somebody was thinking about it. It took me about 3 hours and was well worth the effort.

I couldn't find a decent way to mount the XM controller so I fab'd up a flexible mount out of a lamp from LOWE's and a project box from RS. The flexible mount is secured by the bolt on the passenger seat left front mounting bolt. Right now I am using FM modulation, but I may go RCA, anybody have thoughts on this? The antenna was a breeze, I ran the wire through the hatchback, down the moulding on the driver side into the receiver mounted in the dash.


Check out my completed install here:

It cost about $20 to do it. I think it would be easy to mount anything that way, but it may cost a little more.

It just seems stupid to me to pay 10$ a month for xm with 30 stations that have 9 minutes of commercials for every hour when you could get SIRIUS which is 13$ a month with absolutly no commericials on music stations. If thier gonna make money off advertising, why should you pay so much?
