I'm installing sirius radio on my 530 and am having a hard time deciding where to mount the display. I've seen pics of it to the right of the ignition and thats about it. Is there a better place to put this thing?

I pulled all the factory stuff, still pissed about the 5.25 speakers but anyways once you get through all that you have alot of space where the old amp and CD Player went

On the factory set up all you need is the module, harness and antenna. There is no additional display. Your '03 radio (MID) is Sirius compatible. Do what you want but this is the easiest, best performance route but probably not the cheapest.

How do I go factory? I plan on keeping everything stock in the car and hooking to the CD changer in the rear but I still have to put the display somewhere.
As Sidney said, it's not the cheapest, but I think it's the best. I got an adapter module made by blitzsafe. I also had to acquire a late model cd player, but you should be ok on that part. I was lucky enough to find a forum member who was selling everything I needed out of his car.
