Has anyone successfully installed a recycled XM receiver
I recently purchased a used 2010 528i and understood that it would have XM. The receiver was missing but it was prewired. (dealer made good on the issue so not crying there) I now have to find a retrofit.
I have been told that the XM is activated via the vin number and once it is activated (by BMW / dealer) the receiver can't be used in a different car. I have not been able to confirm or deny this ay any level. Can anyone help? I understand that a software upgrade of sorts is in order and am fine with that, but $1200.00 for a radio - not cool.
