I just bought a new Pacifica this weekend and got a new Sirius satellite
radio included in the deal. I think its a promo. I was wondering if anyone
had any experience with this. Will it be integrated into the factory radio?
OR will I have to have that obnoxious add-in radio installed on the dash?

It's part of the factory radio, and once you get used to NO COMMERCIALS AT
ALL!!! you'll learn that you can't live without it. A word of caution: If
you listen to the 2 comedy channels(raw dog and another) be careful while
driving, a couple of times they played comedy routines that had me laughing
until the tears were coming out of my eyes! It got awful hard to drive!

Got it installed yesterday! WOW! Unfortunately, for me, it's my wifes new
car, so I'll only be able to enjoy it on weekends.
However, I'm ready to install it in my PT Cruiser now. I think my stereo is
already SAT compatible. Just need a tuner and antenna??? Not sure. Any
insight?

Yes, plenty, I have a 2002 Bright Silver Limited edition PT, it came with
the RAZ type radio, cd/cassette/am/fm with cd changer controls. In April of
2003, I called a local Chrysler dealer, gave the parts guy my VIN, and he
checked and found out that my radio could be hooked up to the Sirius
receiver.
You need to order the receiver, and a "vehicle specific" installation
kit, the receiver was $175 and the kit was $125. Rather then drill a hole
in the roof of my nearly new car, I paid the dealer to do the install. This
gave me a 1 year Chrysler warrenty on the install. The install went
smoothly and it looks like it came factory equipped.
If you have a 2002 or newer PT, with cd changer controls, I think you
can have Sirius installed without the additional "head unit". Call a parts
dept. and find out.
Good luck;
