Smile Stiletto w/o car kit (maybe a quick fix for preinstalled XM?)

I just bought a Stiletto SL100, hooray! The first day I had my stiletto I could only use wifi, bummer. I got a new car this weekend with preinstalled xm, bummer. I tried to use it in the car with out the car kit with little to no luck. This morning I decided to bring the headphones along thinking "what the couldn't hurt". I tried positioning the headphones everywhere and still no luck. Then I noticed that there is a wire that comes down from the antenna that "wraps around" my rearview mirror. It looked like a very thinly shielded cable. I slipped my headphones "behind" this wire, placing the wire as closely to the band of the attena headphones as possible. I made the headphones "hug" my rearview mirror to hold them in place and BINGO! I'm driving around listening off of the satellite all morning with very few drops with no car kit!

I'm still getting the car kit (for xmas though) but I wanted to know if anyone has more specific information about the car or home kit? Can the home kit's attena be replaced? Do they all have the same connector on the home attenas? I'm new to Sirius and I want to optimize all reception as much as possible. I would love to be able to record Howard in the morning before I wake up right from home. Thanks!

(i'll post pictures if people want to see what I did...maybe it would work for people without xm preinstalled also...who knows!)

Sirius rocks! Howard all day! Holy MOELY!!!
