As mentioned before, the dealer is still gonna need to program it. I'm guessing it'll be a couple of grand.

Since you like XM better, you'll probably have to go aftermarket.
This is incorrect. X5's are pre-wired for Sirius.

The dealer, if they're nice, will do the programming for free if you install the receiver yourself.
