Solution 1: Buy an aftermarket Sat radio.
Solution 2: Use Internet streaming Sat radio.
Solution 3: Buy the pano roof anyway.
Solution 4: Buy a different car
SiriusXM's Internet Radio for your smartphone and bluetooth-stream or USB-tether to your Model S's audio system.
Paying $1,500 for a pano roof (that you'd hate) just for the sake of satellite radio is at best odd
#1. can you play the after market satellite radio through the built in stereo?
#2 I will check to see if I can get my news programs online
#3 Seems like a waste if #1 of #2 works
#4. No way. I am getting the car. I can live without CNBC
And, oh, if Tesla allows it (unless they insist on folks ponying up for the pano roof just for Sat radio), SiriusXM might come up with an (Internet streaming) app for the Model S touchscreen console itself - this'd serve the purpose too if you end up subscribing to Tesla's connectivity package.
I like the freedom of the smartphone (assuming you have one) option better in any case...
We don't know for sure if there's going to be an Aux-in jack on the car stereo, but it would be odd if there isn't one. Of course it's odd that they put the antenna of the Sat radio in the pano roof, but there you go.
Some bad reviews of the XM iPhone app. Hopefully they'll have the kinks worked out before you get your car.
To be fair, plugging an iPhone in via USB will get you access to the onboard music from the iPod player, but wouldn't get you audio from any other apps.
