Mein Auto: 2008 328i Convertible
Cancelling preset (stored) Sat Channels

I recently purchased a very clean 2008 328i convertible. Unfortunately, it did not come with an owners manual, but I have been able to open a PDF file that provides most of the needed information. However, i cannot find any information as to how to cancel (delete) previouly store SAT channels. Can anyone help me?

Maybe this might work...pull the fuse supplying Sirius receiver with power, then...

You might also simply tune to Channel 0, and store that on the button(s) which you wish to reset.

cancelling prviously stored SAT channels

Thanks for the responses to my question, but I finally figured it out. It turns out you cancel and existing preset by replacing it wwith a "new" preset. The "new" one locks in and the unwanted one goes away.

Yup, what I effectively stated in Post 3!
