Any thoughts on the most efficient way to add xm radio to a 1992 Brougham?

The car has a small aftermarket antenna on the A pillar which I'm guessing is for satellite reception?

Satellite radio antennas usually look like shark fins or are just a little square block.

Is your radio currently stock? Cleanest XM radio install would be to get a headunit that has XM built in. Otherwise you'll have to have a separate XM control unit and wires running to/from it for power/audio/antenna, which I never liked.

But then you do lose the stock look...

Radio is stock casette. Don't know what the antenna would be for?

I added a Sirius Sportster to my 94 FWB. The unit is mounted in the glove box, it is an RF (radio frequency) connection and the small disc antenna is mounted on my dash in the passennger side corner by the windsheild base.
