    Hi guys and gals ,
    just canceled my sirrius contract. While doing so the sirius Rep asked if i was installing the xm unit myself and if so i had better not, because it voids the warranty with the auto manufacture :eek: .Last ,he also offered me a free external radio unit and 3 months of free siriuis radio. my reply was still no thanks . what say all of you ! tia

    That wouldnt void anything unless there was a problem that could be proven to be caused by your negligent install
