sorry, ignore this post. I can't delete it

So, I got the standard options on my Abarth Spider. So no XM radio. Is it possible to add a tuner without installing a new stereo?

Me, too. I got the standard version of the Abarth sound system. I tried using my phone and the XM app, but that was suboptimal. I agonized over my options, and bought the Sirius XM Commander Touch.

I had to figure out how to install it myself, because the guy at Best Buy was being a wuss about it and didn't want to mess with it.

I installed the antenna in front of the trunk lid. I wired the main unit using some of the help from this guy:

I used some double sided tape to tape the touch unit over that annoying passenger seat belt indicator, and plugged it into the AUX plug. It actually looks pretty decent, and sounds pretty good, too...

So, it is possible... I've been pretty happy so far.
