    I mounted my magnetic antenna to the top of the windshield with double back tape. My car is black and so is the antenna, so I think it looks good. I ran the wire under the weatherstrip and down the side to the door, so it enters the car on the side by the door and not at the top of the windshield, to avoid leaks.

    The guy on the site said he has no problems with signal. Guess I'll find out soon and let you guys know. If it works it would be the perfect place.

    I have t-tops, and I ran mine up my pillar, around the t-top weather stripping, under the middle T-Top hold down thingy, and used some molding tape to put it right in the middle behind my t-tops... Looks really clean. Almost like it belongs... If I have time I'll try and put pictures of where all I ran it tomorrow. Because I know half the shit I just said makes no sense at all!

    mine is magnetic, I have it on the child-seat hooks that are on the flat part of the landing in the hatch. Looks nice because I run the wire through the middle console, under the side panels inside, and then into the fender well where the spare is so I can disguise the extra cord from the antenna. Then it just sits there in the hatch area, pretty low key.

    Small side note to ask people tho, I have a FM modulator on my sirius radio that doesn't work worth a shit, my friend gave me a piece of equipment that you plug the FM antenna into, then it has a box inline, then it plugs into the FM antenna port on your stock radio. This blocks out FM signal from whatever channel your modulator is using so u get clean sound. The only problem was that it was for a rice mobile and the antenna connection size and shape is diff then the camaro. Anyone ever seen or heard of one of these for our application??

    I have sirius in my d/d truck and my camaro.
    for the camaro I have the antenna INSIDE the car. I ran the wire under the carpet towards the back of the car. The antenna is resting on the back hump behind the seat. I put velcro on the antenna to hold in place. It works great through the glass never had any issues.

    Brandon if you need a hand to wire it I have done over a dozen of these things pm me

    here's my setup, pretty simple. the module is in the console.
    Be careful putting it there, I did the exact same thing, and ended up with it leaving scratches on the paint, the fix for it, just move it left (in the picture) down into the bottom of the channel... the hatch will still close just fine, and it still gets great reception and your fm antana will pick it up even better since part of the FM transmitter antana is in the wiring to the Sattelite antana, so the closer you can get it to the cars fm antana you eliminate static and get the best fm reception...
