sirius(ly)

OK,I am wondering if anyone out these has the definitive answer about changing the XM brains in the new Camaro to a Sirius brain. I have a Sirius lifetime subscription because of Howard Stern, but I ordered my 2SS despite the XM standard. You would think that since the merger they would make it optional which you wanted in your Camaro, but no. I'm not sure the antennas are cross-compatible... does anyone know the truth about this? Please help!

You can get Howard through the XM Receiver with the "Best of Sirius" Package.

Only $2 per month and no screwing with the radio!

Yeah, but he'd have to pay for a new XM base fee and not be able to add the XM unit as a reduced cost second unit on his Sirius account.

Have you called and asked if they can move the subscription now that they are the same company?

Yea, unfortunately you need to pay for a base XM subscription, and add the $2 Best of Sirius. But at least you do not have to screw around with the radio. This is what I am going to do.

I questioned this a while ago and was told no because this radio uses a new system of some sort, and I don't believe sirius/XM is going to bother creating a convertor box.

I had Sirius a few years ago but don't use it anymore. I was just driving my bros truck a few days ago with Sirius. I realised how much I miss it and I'll be reinstalling it again shortly.

At the Camaro event in Grapevine, I asked the XM rep if I could switch my Sirius account over to an XM radio and she told me that it wouldn't be a problem. Maybe she didn't have all the facts.
