  1. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    We purchased a pre-owned 2016 X1 and the satellite radio maxes out at Channel 219 (our subscription does not). Sirius XM explained that this is b/c it is a Sirius radio and the chipset prevents it from going any higher. Really want our sports channels (all higher - and yes, can run through...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I am trying to determine if my dealer is scamming me regarding Satellite Radio. I bought a new 2018 440i x-drive convertible on 1/6/2018. Last week I received a letter from SiriusXM wanting to know if I was enjoying my 1 year free subscription to their Satellite Radio service. When I tried to...

On the drive entertainment screen i dont even see the satellite" option (just AM FM WB CD) Dealer wants $1400 to replace but I see various models on ebay my question is "do I have to find the exact model (65.12 -9142852-03 AI:03 gen 2.5) or...
  4. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    We were told when we bought our 2012 X5 that it would "only cost about $100 at the dealer" to have the Sirius radio activated on our car. After calling the dealer and finding out it was going to be several hundreds of dollars, we tried to find a cheaper option. We found Bimmer-tech and the whole...
  5. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    I just wanted to let other members know about the great and positive experience I had with an aftermarket install of the Sirius satellite radio on my 2013 X1. I purchased a certified used 2013 X1 in April 2015 and I was very disappointed after I brought it home and realized that satellite radio...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I just recently moved from my old e46 to an e90 and I am having a lot of trouble finding someone to do any radio work on it. Every shop/person I talk to seems to either not do it or have no idea. I live in Cincinnati and want a few things done and I am not mechanically inclined at all. I...
  7. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Question: :confused: After finally taking my 650i to the dealer to diagnose my No Audio and SOS communications error messages it was determined that my SIRIUS DLP module went out. I put a bypass Loop on the Fiber Optic line and I at least got audio back for AM, FM, CD, AUX and Bluetooth. I...

  10. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    My new 2013 F30 (Lighting, Tech, Leather, M-Sport) is due to be picked up next week, and when I ordered it, I was told that it would only be "a couple hundred dollars" to add it after delivery so I didn't order the premium package. I've read that people are being quoted around $375 to add it...

  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Ok so I am as of yesterday the proud owner of a 2001 X5. There are 2 cables coming from a hole in the dash. Now I am pretty sure that these are satellite radio cables and was wondering since satellite radio recievers send sound through those cables couldn't I get some sort of adapter to hook up...
  13. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I'd like to put a wired in version of satellite radio in my 2003 745Li, but there doesn't seem to be an adaptive connector/modifier on the market to create the needed aux. input jack port. I've heard that there is an adapter available, but I haven't been able to trace it down through BMW dealers...
  14. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I recently picked up a pretty lightly used 2004 645 (with only 30k miles) that I had found at the local dealership during my typical "drive through the BMW/Audi/Merc dealers to see if there are any impulse buys available" weekend routine. I'm a former Audi fanatic who, now after owning the 6...

    I want to get Satellite Radio installed in my boyfriend's 2006 X3 for Valentine's Day. What is my best option? Should I take it to a dealership or should I just order a Sirius radio (which one?)? How expensive are the radios and installations?
  16. General BMW Questions
    Was checking out BMW's yesterday and was trying to get satellite radio. I love it and it is a major issue to me that I can't get it. The manager said that they couldn't get them right now and that they have been giving money back to customers who ordered it because the units just aren't...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, I want to install my Skyfi3 XM radio in my car however, it requires that I place a contact on the antenna in order to receive the rebroadcast. I have no idea where the embedded antenna is, I assume it's integrated within the defog lines in the rear window but which one(s)?

    Working on taking advantage of factory satellite pre-wire features to help me "hide" my aftermarket Sirius wires (Stratus 5) on my 2005 X3 with (SA 693, DSP I believe) Business radio/CD. I've read numerous threads, shopped at MyRadioStore and I think I understand how to get power to it w/o...
