: 2007 X3 Sirius Install: Is Re-coding Needed?

06-07-2007, 07:12 AM
My 2007 X3 (build 5/11/2007) should be at the dealer today or tomorrow. When I was there finalizing the finance issues (got a great deal with advice from the Ask-a-Dealer forum, btw), I asked the parts dept about getting a Sirius unit. The X3 now comes with Sat prep standard, but they plugged in my new vin and said the install required recoding from the service dept. to work. Does anyone know if this is true? They're quoting 30 minutes for install, but my guess is that the service dept will charge me 2 hours for the re-coding, if it needs it.
