Thanks and no, no Sirius antenna on the base model. I found a kit online that will add Sirius to the stock stereo for a whole lot cheaper than getting the interior package + premium v6 build. I will be putting the antenna on the corner of the dashboard, they tend to wear out if on the exterior (I assume the stock Ford one is built in a way that doesn't but the ones from the kits will rust out).
Beautiful car and I'm completely jealous of the mileage you're getting. I get 15 mpg

I got the base model, too. The only thing I missed was satellite radio.
For now I'm using a Pioneer Inno portable XM radio.
Picks up a signal pretty good in the car, lets me record off air, and I can take it into work with me.
I have it mounted in a holder stuck in the center passenger air vent.
I just don't like having the wire running down to the center console to get to the aux in jack. Messy.
Works for now. Maybe in the future I'll consider the Sirius install.

I have the same beautiful Kona Blue 2012 V6 mt. I'm curious if you completed your Sirius installation, what it looked like, and where you did end up installing the antenna. When I looked at the link you gave for the after-market package I couldn't see an antenna. Also, how is the stock radio handling the Sirius tuning? Thanks much!
