Default Problems installing 07 radio with aux input and sat radio tuner into an 04 WRX?

I picked up an 07 radio with aux input and the Sirius tuner package and I've run into a few problems trying to install them. First I have no clue where the hell to put the aux input assembly....it doesn't seem like it will fit anywhere in the car without some handy Dremel work. Second, there appears to be no possible way to install the radio with the Sirius receiver attached to it. It appears to be physically impossible to fit it in the dash once it's connected to the bracket and the radio. Anyone else been here and done this?

I just put an 07 stereo in my 02 - I was wondering how one would get the Sirius tuner in there (the one I bought didn't have the tuner) - one thing to try - it looked like there was some room past the stereo - since the 07 radio is shorter than the 02-04, you pick up even more space there - maybe (if the cables reach) you could put it on behind the stereo? Either that, or if you can run the cable, there looks to be room on the inside of the lower dash trim panel on the drivers side. For the Aux input, I am hiding that under the dash, and just running an extension cable to where I put my iPod.

Ha! Funny thats the same thing I did with my aux input. LOL!
As far as the sat tuner I was thinking the same thing that maybe I could just shove it behind the radio but the more I think about the more I'm thinking I should just sell it and get a portable Sirius unit that I can move from car to car or even to my house.

well I'm not sure how big or what the headunit looks like but I do know there is a nice big gap next to the cabin fan behind the glovebox. Thats where I put my bluetooth adapter for my D3.

Just FYI,
