If your radio has the little Sirius symbol on it or it says in the owners manual that it is Sirius ready then you should be able to buy the direct unit and do that. But if stlwagon is right(and he most likely is) then you will need to buy an aftermarket head unit with the controls built in and then get the direct kit or buy a universal fm modulated unit that suction cups to your windshield(can also be put in a cupholder or vent as well).

i would recommend if you go that route to use the vent because you can then use the vent as a wire chase so you don't have ugly wires running all over your car.

i installed a head unit controlled system in my wifes car (08 mazda 3) and it wasn't to hard. if your head unit is designed for it you should be able to do it fairly easy.

does anyone know if the Sirius FM relay works with a mustang at all? it says "The FM adapter, which works with all Sirius plug 'n' play and personal radios, includes plugs and wires for most installations, although antenna adapters may be required for select car stereos."

any idea if it will work for a 2005 shaker 500? also with a Sirius sportster 5?
