Satellite radio module?

I'm looking to add satellite radio to my 07, someone is selling a sat radio module from an 07 m5.
If I buy it will BMW be able to program it for my car? Or are they vehicle specific and only work in the car it came out of?
Could I do it myself?
Dealer wanted $1500 to add it to my car, for new module and all programing.!

sat radio

The dealer can definitely recode your car to include the installed Sat Radio module. It probably wont be cheap, around 3-400.00 or ask around the board and see if there is someone local that can code it for you.

I also have one from an 07 I can sell you if the other one doesn't work out. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Search.

yes the module should work

You can buy them on eBay for a few hundred all day long ($199 easy, I missed a deal on one for $140 the other day).

Dealer can code car accordingly, or if you have access to coding software/cable you can do it yourself

Does your car have sat prep or no?
