I know the antenna that I had for my integra was magnetized to the roof of the car....
They sell XM antennas that are magnetized that go on the roof of the car for plug and play units. It's possible that those would plug into the antenna slot on the tuner box in this kit. If you can't find someone who knows for sure, you may just have to order this unit and test it with a plug and play antenna when it arrives. Otherwise, you'll just have to mount the standard antenna on the windshield.

My son has an '07 Si. I am concerned that he spends too much time fiddling with his IPOD. Is the $375 Honda upgrade to link to the audio system worth it? Are there other better alternatives?

I think Honda discontinued their civic IPOD link last year when they were having trouble with the software.
The alternative is to get an aftermarket deck at a place like circuit city. They have decks with accessories for attaching into the Ipod dock. You plug the ipod in once you get into the car. Then he can control the ipod through the in dash controls and not have to try to control the Ipod through it's little screen.
#165 of 211 2000 Civic radio code - need to reset
May 04, 2008 (6:25 am)
After changing the battery on my 2000 civic, I need the radio code to reset the audio system. I did not get the code when I bought the car used. Dealer wants $100 to remove the stereo from the dash to get the serial #, which seems ridiculous. Said they could not get it from the VIN. Any suggestions?

Have you registered your Honda yet on the owner-link site?
After I registered, on my car it gave me a link to get my radio code. However, along with the VIN number it did require the serial number from the unit as well.
Here's what it says on that:
"For certain models, the dealer may have placed a label with the device serial number on the glove box.
For year 2001 and later models, you may obtain the serial number from the device display. This procedure is detailed in the device’s manual.
For models earlier than 2001, the serial number is located on the back of the device. This will require a trip to the dealer to obtain the number. "
So it does confirm what the dealer is saying about removing the unit on your 2000 to get the serial number. I'd open the glove box and double check the outside panels and interior panels of the glove box to make sure there is no label giving the serial number.
If not, then if you take your vehicle to a local stereo shop, I'm sure they'd remove it for you and get the serial number for a lot less than $100.
#168 of 211 Stock 06-08 Stereo
May 12, 2008 (7:48 am)
I've had my civic for a few months now, and I've noticed that the bass on the stereo is really quite good on my regular CDs, MP3 CDs, and Auxiliary input, and the Radio at low volume levels (lower than 15 volume level). However, above 15 it seems that the bass is locked and does not increase with the level of the volume. It seems very much akin to sound-leveling that's used on TVs, so as not to blow the speakers. On TV's it can be disabled, but the stereo doesn't have an option to disable it.
1. Has anyone else here noticed this issue? It's been posted upon here:
2. Is there a workaround that doesn't involve me buying a separate subwoofer that takes up unnecessary trunk space?

I've thought about it fairly seriously, and a couple days ago I asked my cousin with an EX to test the radio on their system. Seems that this Bass System Kit does help, but it still doesn't explain why the bass is just fine on the existing speakers when playing a CD, but sounds bad with the radio. I feel pretty short-changed on that.
