Sirius currently only has a kit to convert GM vehicles. Hopefully others will be on the way. I would keep checking Sirius' website.

You may want to hold off and see what happens with the merger. You may not need to switch. If you want to do it now...give these guys a call. If it exists for Sirius they know about it.

I doubt there will be any merger. If there is it will cause a slippery slope that i doubt the FCC and SEC want to deal with.

You can always replace the factory radio with an aftermarket one that's Sirius compatible. Not the most elegant solution, but hey, it works.

Check the above mentioned site, or call any local "specialty" car audio and video shop.....NOT Best Buy or Circuit City. I have converted a Sirius Kenwood deck to XM before, I'm sure there is an adapter to go the other way on a factory unit too.
