Looks like a good clean install. :tu: I was going to put mine in the same spot but I have the older Audiovox style receiver and it was just a bit too big. When I get a new one I will do the same thing. Did you run the antenna cable through the headliner?

Yes, We Ran By The Center Console, And Up The Driver Side Rear Trim In The Back, The Head Liner Was A Bit Tricky A Two Man Job For Sure, The Rear Brake Light, Was Attached With Black Foam It Was Stuck On There Really Well, Was Going Just The Foam Seal And Was Told By Dealer Had To Purchase A Whole New Light At 90 Bucks, So We Resealed With Silicone, OH AND I BOUGHT THE PROFESSIONAL INSTALL KIT AT CIRCUIT CITY.

Well again looks very good, and much prefer that placement of the receiver. I didn't mind disassembling the dash and center console for my USA spec install but was a bit intimidated with the idea of trying to run the antenna cable through the headliner. Next time I might have to give it a try.

That looks really good. I have the newer Sirius Sportster model, which is a bit bigger, and I don't think it will fit at the bottom of the dash like that. Hope to hear more ideas ...

Got my xm receiver sitting in the sunglass holder to the right of the shifter (at least I used it for holding my sunglasses clip). Ran the cables under the center console, behind the dash on the driver's side and out the driver's door to the front fenter. From there, ran the wire inside the front fender to the antenna which is just magnetically attached on the front fenter where it meets the windshield. Great reception here in the mountains and didn't have to take anything apart...mostly because I didn't want to risk water leakage around the rear window/brake light! So, that's another option. It really isn't noticeable on that spot by the windshield.

For another option.....My antenna is mounted on the front of my roof just above the windshield..dead center.

Same as your install, but then the wire runs right into the windshield gasket ( it has a "trough" of sorts) then follows it up to the top and right out.

My install guy preferred this way over the rear brake light option as well.

No leaks or pinching and great reception!!!

I made my own Cigarette lighter mount. It pushes into the Cig. lighter hole and holds my Sirius JVC radio perfectly.

No holes to drill and I can remove it anytime I want
