What is the best most OEM like way to add XM to a 2004 325 with Business CD Stereo?Get XM Direct (http://xmradio.com/xm_direct/index.jsp)and the HU will operate as if the BMW OEM Sirius module had been installed. Install you antenna on rear deck behind the rear seat for a complete stealth installation.

Thanks for the link that looks pretty good. So BMW has a factory Sirius module? I don't care if it's XM or Sirius, I just want satellite radio. Maybe I should look at the OEM Sirius module then. Is the reception good with the XM module?

Do a search here in B'fest on XM Direct and you will find DYI instruction, opinions, etc.
