Sirius/XM Radio Retrofit...

Our 2011 X5 is inbound and I'm wondering whether I made a tactical error by not ordering the satellite radio feature.

Looking at the BMW Accessories website, it looks like the navigation equipped X5s have the capability and only need an enable code to make it work. Has anyone else retroactively activated their sat radio capability?

Yup. You're dealer will need to code the car with the enabling code so add a hours labour to the cost of the enabling code.

It's a bit cheaper if you buy it as a factory option but not the end of the world !

That appears to be the case if you have the SA609 Nav Option....
