Sirius Magnet Antenna

I just picked up an '06 M3 Coupe that has a magnetic antenna on the trunk. I'm concerned about it marking up the paint (I keep the paint pretty waxed though).

Anybody else have experience with this type antenna and any adversity?

Thanks.

I installed mine inside on the rear deck where the center baby seat anchor is located. You can also mount it under the deck.

Xpel is the key

I'm having the car Xpelled tomorrow and will have a small square cut and put where the magnet sits. Then the antenna will out for good reception and my paint will be happy.

I got the idea from the Z3/Z4 Club of Arizona where some of the guys put it on their trunks to protect from the external luggage racks.
