Sirius is compatible with Clarion, and alot of (well most clarions) are sirius ready and Clarion kicks major butt. Two the service is better, cost about the same if not less than XM. And pick the model that looks and goes where you want......

sirius, they are the only satellite radio that is commercial free...atleast for now anywayz. XM now has commercials because the advertisements make money.

Sirius. It works great with my Kenwood. Don't forget that Howard Stern goes on board in January. I haven't listened to typical radio ever since I had it installed a year ago.

Sirius. And get the $90 model. A friend of mine just got it and it's great.
And why pay for radio when FM is free? Cause the same cds get old after awhile, going across a state or further without having to change the station or search for a station, stuff you never hear on the radio, uncut songs (it really pisses me off when they cut stupid words out of a song, why play it at all), radio shows that don't have an affiliate in your area ( Howard Stern if you're a fan and you live somewhere in Georgia). I could probably come up with more.

Edit: And no commercials. Which means the stations will be cooler since they're not bowing to any sponsors.

Sirius for sure. Its 98x more popular than XM and tons of people are coming back for 2nd, 3rd and 4th receivers because they like it so much. Plus they have a $500 lifetime subscription deal which is sweet. So if you use it for more than 50 months you get your moneys worth on it.

Yes, you can buy the lifetime subscription for the one price, but only for that particular receiver. If that receiver goes bad, I believe the subscription goes down with it.

I just pay mine once a year. $132/ year for my car and $66 for my gf's car. I get 1/2 off the 2nd receiver and one month free. I still have 2 more spots open that I can add to and get 1/2 off.

That may be so as far as popularity, but XM has a much larger market share. I believe that once Stern goes on the air, Sirius will start to catch up to XM.
