On my Insight, S2000, and Ford truck, I had it mounted on the roof. For some reason the metal creates a better reception. I also had them use a FM modulator so I could tune into a specific radio channel and have had no poblems. That's what I would suggest.

When I did my XM install a couple weeks ago, I didn't want any "what if's". So I bought the FM modulator when I bought the XM package. I also took the extra effort to mount the antenna on top. I wanted zero problems (reception-wise). I also didn't want to be okay with just 'okay'. I wanted the best reception everywhere. A guy i work with is always b!+ching about his bad reception from his 15 min install.

I'm pretty sure after researching for mine, that yours (being an 03) will have a standard antenna plug behind your cubby. I'm not sure if you coupe has a cubby like my sedan but I can only assume it's the same.

I'm going to post some pictures of my install HERE in my original post. Hope it helps.
