: X3 After Market Sirius Sportster antenna install

11-22-2005, 03:07 AM
Can anyone help me find a newbie guide to installing the antenna to my after market Sirius Sportster in my 2005 BMW X3? I went to Best Buy this weekend and bought the $150 Sportster Replay (I decided to go the cheap route instead of the $500 BMW authorized version). I broadcast to an FM station, and everything works fine, but right now I have the antenna just sitting on the dash. It doesn't look so hot, and I know that I can run the antenna underneath some rubber molding and onto the top of the car. Problem is, I have never done anything like this before, and I want to do it myself, but don't really know how. Ideally, I would love to be able to amplify the signal coming from the Sirius FM transmitter too (so that I don't get as much outside interference).

If anyone can point me in the right direction to learn how to do this stuff, it would be greatly appreciated.
