Some of them you can even take out of the car and plug it into your stereo at home.

Hmmm...that would be cool. Clearly I have research to do.

Here are a few pics for ya. They're 800x600 and between 60 and 105kb, so dial-up users may take awhile to download them.

Trunk Receiver

Trunk Receiver (Closer)

Antenna on Trunk-Lid

Controller on Dash (Above CD Player)

Lit-Up Dash and SIRIUS Controller

I love how well the SIRIUS "glow" goes with my lit-up dash.

As for the units that can go in both the car and the home, they can be found here.

Enjoy!

I'm considering XM, since my '03 is XM ready. But I'm not sure about the antenna issue. The owners manual reads: 'Your XM Satellite Radio antenna is located on the roof of your vehicle.' There is no antenna on my roof. I have one in the windshield, one in the rear window and the Onstar mast mounted to the rear window. Do I need to get another antenna or what?

XM update...

Well, I got to the bottom of the XM thing. I thought ALL '03 Bonnevilles were XM ready - but it'* an optional package, that I don't have The 'package' includes a XM ready stereo and XM antenna (3" tall tumor on the roof), which all would cost almost $2000 to get installed in my car. So I'll have to go with an aftermarket Delphi XM or a Sirus - $150 is much easier to handle.
