    Tried searching but didn't find much, has anyone ever asked the SC if you can retrofit the XM Satellite radio module into a car with the standard audio system? Thanks in advance! Will be over at the SC later this week so will ask when I'm there and provide feedback for anyone that is interested.

    I just stream Satellite radio from my phone's app at the moment which works fine but it'd be nice to have the module put in if possible.

    As long as you have the panoramic roof.... it is theoretically possible I suppose. Not sure how much work would be required if the antenna is or is not installed. etc.

    I do have the panoramic roof so as you said, should be possible, just curious if anyone has gotten the SC to do the install or if I could just find the module/antenna from a salvage car and put it in, curious if the system just sees it and recognizes it or if the system needs different firmware to utilize it.
