go with the kit that those local stores have bestbuy, circuitcity. the
fm modulator usually work with 88.7 and 89 something. the fm modulator
will overpower those stations and transmit the xm radio and you still
have your other fm station to listen to. crutchfield have xm radio
with headunit combo, but by now you probably already bought something
