  1. General BMW Questions
    Newbie here and as the title is the question. I only ask because I have searched a found only what everyone else has posted or commented. From what I have been seeing it there is a satellite connection in the trunk of the car that has the connection for a sirius xm tuner, only problem is I dont...
  2. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey Everyone, Just purchased a pre-owned 2010 X5 30i with only 43k miles in great condition. I've tried searching the forums for this but can't seem to find a definitive answer. I'm not one to normally DIY but figure, hey why not start trying! 1. Looking to replace the interior yellow...
  3. Car Navigation, Audio & Electronics
    I've had Infinitis for 9 years now after BMWs. All Infinitis had XM radio, great sound systems, full rich sound, rare antenna drop outs -- and I drive the same route every day around wooded areas. My new 425i is a nightmare. The second I heard the sound pulling away from the dealership I knew...
  4. 5 Series DIY
    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...
  5. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I've seen this topic but no real answers and wanted to share something. I recently purchased a 2009 750Li and as I have worked through some minor tweaks, the last being the Sirius not working. When I would select satellite radio, I would see choices of All Channels but nothing displayed beneath...
  6. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys, recently bought a 99' 328i , it looks like the previous owner has already installed a delphi xm radio in it, as well as some sort of auxiliary input wires. I need some help figuring out how to get them to work. If anyone can offer some suggestions or words of advice, well, that...
  7. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Back for more help. I did not realize that my new 535xi did not come with SiriusXM Radio. I listen to it all the time as I drive about 25-30k per year. That being said where can I buy the original part. Can I install it my self. How do I integrate it to my IDrive. or is it worth just...
  8. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Want to install SiriusXM Edge unit. Someone please tell me where the antenna cable plugs into radio on my X5. I took the head unit out, plus reading several forum sites, and guess it’s in the trunk somewhere. I have the Sirius FM adapter and bought two Metra BMW antenna cable adapters to...
  9. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I bought a used 745i and the previous owner had installed an XM Radio in the top drawer of the center console. The problem is it doesn't turn on or anything so I'm trying to either fix it or somehow take apart the center console so i can detach the radio controller...it wastes precious drawer...
  10. 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...
  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I've got an '06 X3 without Nav and without DSP. No CD changer. It has the Sat Pre-Wire. Got the XMD1000 Tuner (http://www.xmradio.com/xm-direct/index.xmc) and the proper cable from BlitzSafe. Hookup was a breeze. Thanks to the many posts here on Bimmerfest for pre-purchase guidance! Opened...

    Hi. When our second child was born, we needed to downgrade to a mini-van, so I have a few items left over from the very sad day that I traded in our beloved 2006 x3. Specifically, I have everything you need to install XM Radio into a Sirius-ready x3, including a Blitzsafe adapter, OEM mounting...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    This is my first mod. I have the xm direct kit from EAS and am planning to do the DIY install. I have read on other posts about mounting the antenna to the rear package shelf and am wondering how to do that. I dont think my seats fold down, but someone mentioned routing it. Any help would be...
  14. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi everyone! I have an portable XM satellite radio reviever i would like to install in my 2005 Z4 roadster, but I'm not exactly sure how to do it or if it would be possible, I don't have tape deck just the CD player. I had this little portable XM unit in my old three series and it would...
  15. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    We have a 2005 X3 3.0i with the Navigation system. :) We also have the connections in the rear by the DVD player for XM/Sirius; however, everything I've read states that xm will not work with the navigation system. The navigation system is in a seperate unit on the dashboard than the cd...
