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?

did you buy those leather seats after you bought the car? (sorry for the hijack)
