The answer to all your questions are located here http://peripheralelectronics.com/2002/ipod.asp . Even though it might not be as easy to install, I believe that the sound quality you will get is well worth the extra time. Even if u don't have an i-pod, take a look at the aux2car plug.

My mom'* boyfriend has an '04 Altima with Sirius Satellite Radio, and he has the FM Modulation, and it is clear as can be. He even has it setup on a real radio station in the area. Neither conflict, when the Sirius head unit is on, and when it is off, the regular radio staion comes in.

It'* not hardwired.. trust me, I helped him install it .

That'* odd...my buddy was doing the same in his 97 Accord and it would get static and cracklin in it. We hardwired a new HU in with hardwired Sirius and it'* 100% better

I know it is.. but he has excellent reception. For example, going under a bridge most cars loose reception.. [like mine], his does not. So that may play a role. And I am talking about regular radio here, not the satellite radio.

I have the Tape adaptor for my '89, and it is good as can be. My stereo is of excellent quality, however it is stock, so those with aftermarket audio systems may beg to differ. But on mine it'* great.. it'* only a few bucks, you could always try it.
