No static here. Nice and quiet. As for xm radio you hit the sat tab and scroll to channel 1 to get ur radio id number. Call xm and activate it and give them the radio id number

Depending in the year of your car you may need to purchase the xm module that goes near the OEM car amp. I checked into doing that a few years ago and I think it was around $300. There's a DIY here in CL.

You're missing the XM reciever. It is a discontinued part FYI.

I am not saying you can't get it. You can purchase a second hand (used) unit from a yard or on here if they ever show up. What I am saying is that it is no longer made by Lexus and finding a used one is rare. Especially because you are missing the mounting bracket which seems to be the hardest part to find. The unit is broken into two parts, reciever and mounting bracket (cables included). I wish you luck in finding one but your best option is to purchase an aftermarket unit. Personally I would like the OEM route also, so I am just waiting.
