    Ok, i am installing XM radio on my SRT-4 but i am having trouble figuring a way to run the antenna cables into the car. Since it says the connectors cannot be removed my best bet is to hide the wire in the weather stripping and lead it into the trunk but that doesnt look very clean at all. Once i get in into the trunk the only way i see is running it through the flipdwon rear seat and that doesnt look too hot either. Any tips?

    I know the connectors can be removed on Sirius antennas. The plastic body of the connector has clips that pull out and allow it to slide off. The metal part of the connector stays attached to the wires.

    I've installed satellite radio in 3 vehicles, two sedans and a truck. In the sedans, I put the antenna on the rear deck with no reception problems.

    Consider it.

    That looks awesome. Do you think window tint would effect it any?

    As long as the tint is not metallic, it will be fine. My friend just installed the antenna in his Saturn the same way. Works great..
