I took my X5 into the dealer to have the Sirius Satellite radio installed. They called me 1Hr later and said that they could not install and that my X5 did not come pre-wired for Satellite radio. They could not wire it either because it had to be a factory option. Has anyone heard of this, I thought pre-wired was standard. Any way around it or options. The CD-Changer was installed with no problem?

Thanks,

I have an 04 X5, march production, which was not prewired for Serius either. I purchased the antenna, receiver, installation kit, and 2 extension cables. The install went very well and works perfectly. Your dealer is wrong. Serius can be installed in your vehicle.
