Soon I will be a Mazda5 GT owner. It's on order and should be here within the week. I've a question about the current Sirius/Mazda promotion.
In reviewing the Sirius/Mazda press release...
'Toronto, April 4, 2006 — Mazda Canada Inc. and SIRIUS Canada Inc. today announced that for a limited time, customers purchasing or leasing any new 2006 Mazda will receive a SIRIUS Satellite Radio plug-and-play receiver at no extra charge. The promotion runs from April 4 until May 31, 2006 and includes installation of the plug-n-play device as well as a 12-month subscription to SIRIUS Canada ...'.
Can anyone confirm that installation is included?
Which Sirius product is on offer?
(Look out for a snowflake white pearl Mazda 5 in Kanata, Ontario soon)

In a week!!! Hw did you manage that?? Current lead time for a Mazda 5 is 8 weeks!!! I'm in the process of negotiating for one and I've been given dates ( from 3 dealers) of around June 25th for delivery!
You must be getting a vehicle from another dealers stock!
I'm soo jealous!

Hi wa98strat. 'You must be getting a vehicle from another dealers stock!'
Yes I am. There's a dealer in Barrie that's got the one I want.
I ordered it on Easter Monday. My Ottawa dealer says they located the right colour etc at a dealer in Barrie, and the shipper is arranging transport. Could take a week or so. Remains to be seen what happens.

Welcome to the club
In fact today I just got a Sirius Radio from my dealer....it's
in a plastic package, the "do it yourself" kit. I'm scratching
my head how I'm going to install the cables and first of all...where I'm going to put this little box, ...attached to the windshield...on the dash...attached to the sunshades...I think
I have to ask a specialist....I'm afraid I'm going to do a mess!

I'm also going to install the Sirius Radio. There is one thing to consider I think is very important.
If your M5 has side-curtain airbags (as mine does) then I would be hesitant routing the antenna cable above the doors (inside the trim) as was recommended by my dealer. The cable could interfere with the correct operation of the side curtains.
Also, the Sirius Mazda deal includes installation, so you sholdn't have to do it yourself. From the press release, 'Toronto, April 4, 2006 — Mazda Canada Inc. and SIRIUS Canada Inc. today announced that for a limited time, customers purchasing or leasing any new 2006 Mazda will receive a SIRIUS Satellite Radio plug-and-play receiver at no extra charge. The promotion runs from April 4 until May 31, 2006 and includes installation of the plug-n-play device as well as a 12-month subscription to SIRIUS Canada ...'. I got confirmation from the Mazda Canada head office that installation is included.
If you get the dealer to install, make sure the cable does not interfere with the side curtain!

Hey there, the radio should be able to "flip" the display so that you can attach it almost anywhere and read the display.
I placed mine on the passenger side of the bulkhead and the antennae wire is placed under the dash to the right side of the dash. You can install them there, it doesnt have to be outside.
Works great, my dealer put it in for free !

I'm interested in the time and effort you put into this process. I too want to do this, but from the photos on the step by step, it looks like this would take longer then 30 minutes. Can you clarify where the main Audio line unit goes in installation? Does it fit behind the stereo or do you need to use the glove box to mount?
Appreciate your input.
#54 of 114 Tape Player & Face Plate for Mazda 5
Nov 08, 2006 (5:48 pm)
Has anyone purchased a tape cassette player to fit in the empty slot beneath the radio/CD changer unit? The Mazda OEM machine costs over $140 with the face plate costing another $65. Seems quite expensive. What about a third party unit? Would it fit nicely? Any advice? Is the face plate really that beneficial?
