**EDIT** Just did a little looking. If the headunit is XM/Sirius ready, then yes, you can add a tuner module and probably be done with it. I would assume the antenna is built in to the shark fin. If the headunit is not XM/Sirius ready then you would need to upgrade your headunit. But I didn't find anything saying one way or the other whether it's XM ready or not. On Kia's website, it shows the LXV6 with the XM/Sirius headunit as optional, but XM/Sirius as standard.

Good luck!
Thanks for the reply, Jon. I couldn't find anything either in regards to if it is XM ready or not. I do like the stock unit so it would be disappointing if it is not XM Ready. I'm having someone take a look Tuesday to see what my options are so I'll post what I find out.
