My neighbor had one installed in his golf cart at Best Buy. You can pick up this one for $38 at BB. The biggest expense will be the installation, probably $150 to $200 at BB. Their website said the Lady Lake store has 3 in stock.

Check your owners manual, or with your dealer to see if your car has any auxiliary inputs (RCA jacks, 1/8 inch stereo jack, USB or similar), then as mentioned above look for an after market satellite radio with a matching connector. Since this would be plug and play, you should be able to install yourself. NOTE: the auxiliary inputs may be hidden, on my Mustang, it is located in the center console storage compartment, not in the dash or on the radio!

Of your car is new, it probably comes equipped with Bluetooth. U can stream your songs right from your phone into your car speakers. Iheart radio works great, too. Good luck. Peace out...

It does have an auxiliary input in the little bin below the radio

You should be set, take your car to Best Buy, go to the auto section, give them the make and model, etc., and they should be able to get you a unit that will plug in. Add a suitable mounting system, and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps.

On top of buying and installing the radio you will need to pay a monthly fee to have the satellite radio. I'm thinking ours $20 per month.

If you call SirirusXM they often run a special promotion where they'll ship you a basic auto or home radio kit if you sign up for a subscription/membership.

While I really enjoyed Sirius during the free trial that came with my SUV, I did not sign up for it after that. My wife signed up a few years ago, and it took us months (and many irate phone calls and letters) to get the service cancelled and stop the charges.

I've had XM since 2004. Use a portable that I use in an XM Boombox, my Civic, or my truck. Very inexpensive. Can work with either plug in or with radio sync. I've never paid over 5 dollars a month for service.
