first time I have seen it......advertising the 2005 Red Line.....the guy was saying he could have spent like $$$ dollars and got a BMW Z4 but he bought the Red Line because he wanted something faster

Kind of off topic on the redline commercial, but the Cobalt commercials are hitting hard. I was watching FX tonite and they had one every break durring the Shield. On thing disturbs me about it though. They were opening and closeing the doors to show off the sound dampening qualities. But apparently with the Cobalt, the XM radio works great in a covered parking garage. lol

It's the same with my Ion Red Line.

In most garages and short tunnels I get an uninterrupted signal.

Depends on where you live. Most major cities have ground repeaters that send the signal out sideways. Here in St. Louis, if I'm downtown, I can be on the bottom level of a 10 level parking garage and still get full reception, sirius and XM. It also depends on whatever is above you is made of. Out in the county w/o ground repeaters, going under a metal gas station pavillion will cut out the signal, while I still get a decent signal on the first floor of my 2 story wood house.

Some recievers also have a 30 minute buffer built in. If you change channels, though, you loose your buffer.

Yea, my mother's Buick has Xm, and you can get the XM stations in the garage, right after you start it up. Some days, it takes a long time to pick up, and some days it might not start playing until you back out, but I would say at least 9 out of 10 times it gets reception in the garage. The GPS on the other hand, dosen't work at all in our garage.
