I just bought my 2005 yesterday and I've been contemplating that same thing. I was thinking maybe a yaesu FTM-10R mounted in the trunk with the remote face in the console. I haven't figured out how to do it yet though. I have radios in my truck and jeep but this one is going to be tricky because I don't want to mess up the beautiful lines with a 2m antenna or worse yet an HF antenna. I may sacrifice some efficiency and see if I can even get out at all with a mag mount 1/2 wave in the trunk... I just can't see putting an antenna on the outside of this car unless I replaced the FM antenna with it.

What's the difference between a ham radio and a CB radio?

A lot. Freqs, power, reach, you need a license.

Ham radio operators have been very important in getting news out during a disaster.
