Adding XM to stock radio

I just purchased a used 2010 (2009.5?) G6, base model. The sound system doesn't have XM radio which, for me, is a must-have.

Is there any way I can get XM through the stock radio, short of replacing the entire unit? Just logically, it seems as if there should be a module or something similar I could buy and install.

Thanks for your help!

If you have On-Star chances are you already have the XM antenna as its part of the antenna base. The wiring may also be there so literally all you'd need to do is plug in a factory XM module

Sweet, thanks. Now, where could I get a factory XM module? Dealer? Online somewhere?

Ok, so it seems to me, I have everything necessary for XM besides the XM module and antenna. Is there anything preventing me from buying a Pontiac/GM XM module and basic XM car antenna? Hook the module to the radio, antenna into the module, voila, satellite radio?

Or am I missing something?

I promise I'll stop talking to myself one of these days.

Just found this on eBay. Seems to be just what I'm looking for. Thoughts?

All you need is a NEW (non vin locked) factory XM module, plug it in and go.

Right, if I had OnStar.

But I don't. So I figure I need the tuner and the antenna and the whole thing.
