Factory XM antenna is a small truncated pyramid about 2" square, at most 1" high, just in front of the back hatch (at least on the Cayman). Painted to match body color. IMHO, it looks much less obvious than the shark fin you see on Beemers and others.Low profile shark antenna on the roof.
I forgot to mention I also ordered the Bose. The sub is stuffed and audiopilot, surround and linear are left on by default. I turn the bass to 3+ for the XM and leave fader and balance neutral.(Mostly listen to smooth jazz and light rock aka The Bridge) With these settings I think the XM sounds great but that's just my opinion. As you might gather I'm very happy with all these features and would order again. :cheers:I'm curious to know how good the XM sound quality is and the cost of the service monthly....
On Gen 1 cars (PCM 2.1) it is possible to add the Cayenne XM unit and place the antenna under the wiper cowling. It works quite well. I do not know if a similar effort could be accomplished with the current PCM units.That's a bummer--I'd like XM but don't want to get the pricey PCM, guess I'll have to do w/out. I'm going to get the aux. input option (cheap and you can atleast play an ipod through the sound system) and I'm guessing the base cd player will play mp3 decoded cd's so that should help as well
My 06 CS came with one of these. The reception is not great where I live - cuts out from time to time, but the sound quality is pretty good. Not sure if I'll re-subscribe...On Gen 1 cars (PCM 2.1) it is possible to add the Cayenne XM unit and place the antenna under the wiper cowling. It works quite well.
