Post STARMATE 3 In a 2004 Nissan Frontier

I'm new to this Sirius stuff, but pretty happy so far.

I have had the Starmate 3 for a few weeks and was pretty disappointed with the static from the wireless connection. Also did not like antenna and cigarette lighter wires everwhere.

Decided to have everything installed professionally to have a cleaner look and sound.

The results are a tucked out of the way PNP hardwired, FM modulator with a toggle.

Looks good, I plan on putting that into my Pathfinder after the holidays(orange display matches better than Starmate4). How does it sound?
Friday and Saturday nights, I'll probably be at:

Now with the FM modulator the sound is much better. Mind you that my Frontier has a stock radio and speakers, and I am not that picky about the sound. Not as good quality as a CD but I dont care.
