XM is better and cheaper, I don't think sirus will make it.

Does anybody know anybody who knows how to install an XM radio in a Mercedes CL55. It seems that the Mercedes Tech Support people don't have a clue! How about Barry from Lake Norman, do you know how to do it?

XM is owned by Sony. Word on the street is that Sony will buy out Sirius. I have 3 XM's and 1 Sirius. I like XM.

Wow! 4 different units.

One of my warehouses just started carrying XM in a bag. Can be moved from vehicle to vehicle (or boat). Very cool product. I will be getting one.

Why pay for more than one subscription when you don't have to?
