Anyone that's trying to add Sirius to their BMW knows the frustration of the costs of these units. A new unit is $500 because it's sold with 1 year of subscription included. Used units routinely go for close to $300!

Well, I've discovered a solution. BMW sells a remanufactured unit for $265!! (from Tischer or your local dealer).


This is for the iBus cars... e38, e39, e46, e53 x5, z4 etc...

Old part #'s (when looking for a used unit):

84110141981 1st generation for units without OEM Navigation
84110153365 1st generation for units with OEM Navigation
65120398140 2nd generation
65120416377 3rd generation sold only with 1 year subscription


New generation units:
65120440550
65120439436 (current)

That -436 unit has a remanufactured version available: Part # 65120439437.

There is no core charge at this time either.

Interesting... So the refurbed unit I ordered, comes in a box labeled 65120439437.

Inside is a unit labeled 65120440550.

It's an Alpine unit, and it displays more text on the screen (at least in my X3) than the older Chinese unit (2nd generation)

The older (4) units above go for 396, but the last 2 listed are 254.00 Are they compatible with all years e46?
