    Will it mess with my sirius radio reception?

    Will it fit?

    and is it worth the money?

    Why would it mess with your Serius?

    It uses it's own antenna, correct? If so, replacing (or removing) the stock antenna should have no effect on it.

    The Sirius radio has its own antenna. It does not actually use the factory antenna at all (even the aftermarket units) What it does use the the factory antenna wiring if you have an FM MOD box (you tune into a radio station to hear your Sat radio) The Sirius FM MOD box is an inline unit and basically fools the factory radio into thinking its an actually broadcasting station. It has nothing to do with actual RF reception.

    Just a little info.
