xm and bluetooth options for 2008 boxster s

Any after market suggestions for xm radio and bluetooth and maybe gps too, short of spending 5 grand to install factory OEM for my 2008 Boxster S RS 60 Spyder?

I have been looking into after market products and cartronics looks promising and it is plug and play with the existing fiberoptics.

thanks

Look into something like the Pioneer Avic X910BT or the Pioneer Avic Z110BT. They are both great units.

Once you decide on a unit then you need one of these kits for the install...

FYI, The seller is a fellow forum member. GREAT people to work with. They will do pretty much anything to keep their customers happy. (I am not affiliated with their business at all, just a happy customer!)

+1, that is the route I went on my 2004 Boxster S with MOST BUS. I got the Kenwood 7140 with bluetooth, GPS, Sirius & and a back-up camera. All are significant upgrades from the factory Porsche products in my opinion. Porsche makes great driving cars, but their technology tends to run light years behind some of their competitors.
