The biggest difference between them that I know of, is that XM has mostly commercial free stations and Sirius has commercials on almost all stations.

I love music alot, but I have not been able to justify an extra $12-15 per month (after the cost of the head unit) just to hear more music. I prefer to load up the 12 disc changer and hit the road.

Look at a multi-disc changer or, perhaps a unit that supports MP3 playback.

Can't you come down to the US and get it installed? Do the satellites know you are from Canada?
