neither did I, but typically if you have Onstar or XM they will be seperate plugs, and shouldn't get in the way of installation. They will usually have a harness to adapt to the Onstar system as well, as soon as they come out with it!!

Looks pretty good.

Can you watch DVDs on it?

Serene will be a color! Even if only on one car.

I was thinking the same thing.. you like DOUBLED your storage area!

Looks great.. how many days/cut fingers and curses did it take? it looks like a big job,, I wonder if that is how Best Buy does it?

I don't know how they would get it in any other way.

They probably would just cut the wiring though. I just didn't trust them to get the big boomerang piece off without any damage. I knew I could take my time and back off if something wasn't going smooth.

It took me from about 10:00 in the morning till about 4 or 5. Would take a lot less now.

The Sol won't work with those existing harnesses, a seperate one is being developed for our cars. It's just a waiting game at this point.

stubby antenna

Road Trip,
Your sign off says you added a Type Z stubby antenna. Where can I get one? How tall is it? Do you need any adapters? Just got an '07 GXP and I'd like to change the antenna. Thanks.
