    Default Satellite Radio: XM or Sirius?

    I have Sirius in my "99 Z71. All of the new full size chevy's come with XM. Does anyone like XM? I love Howard and the other programming available on Sirius. Let me know...

    I have heard that there is a Sirius "brain" that you can buy for around $100 and plug it into the XM 'brain" and recieve the Sirius service through the factory head unit. Are they available? How much and where?

    I just got Siruis installed the other day. I think I'm in love with it. Anywho, the few friends I have with XM, are all changing over. They say the quality of the programming is better on sirius.

    Default Sirius or XM

    Depending on the content you want to hear (I got Sirius, Love Howard and Bubba) should decide the choice. I just use the built in FM Modulator and factory head unit.

    Default It may not really matter....

    I've heard that XM and Sirius are talking buyout or merger.

    So there's likely to only be one choice soon anyway. Unless the resulting company is considered a monopoly and is blocked by the SEC or FCC, we may end up with XSiriusM as the only choice.

    Otherwise, I'll stick to my CD's and MP3's. They play what I really want to hear for free*. ;')

    * - well, pay once anyway.

    I just spent a week in a SIlverado with a full Bose navigation stereo with XM, and I'm hooked!
