I got the Sirius receiver installed today. The option to replace the FM antenna didn't work. The installer tried. The stereo wouldn't work with the third party antenna. The installer recommended paying the $450 to the dealer, if that's what I really wanted. I won't bore you with the horrendous experience I had at Circuit City (again), but I don't mind telling you the installer at Best Buy was fantastic. The installation was clean and well done. I was worried because I've seen some really bad hack jobs, but this guy was a pro. I got to talking with him and he used to own his own stereo installation business before working for Best Buy. The stress of owning his own business was too much and now he's much happier.
I got to walk around the area for two hours during the installation. It was a tour of the mass market. I went to a Michael's and was overwhelmed by the selection. I had never been to one. What an amazing store! I'll be building my D&D dioramas with junk from this store and I'll be sending customers to Michael's for related stuff. Target in my areas sells a full selection of mass market games, along with a growing number of specialty games that started in our stores. Both the Target and local Barnes & Noble have an unusually large game selection. I'm guessing it's because the area lacks a game store. This was Pinole, and the closest store is Games of Berkeley, about 10 miles and 30 minutes away. If I thought multiple stores was a smart thing, I would put one in Pinole.
As for Sirius, I bought the Sportster 5.
