Two questions

1) Is HD radio standard in the base X5 ?


2) Will the Sirius Radio be a SIRIUS XM capable radio or Sirius only?

HD radio is standard but I am not sure about the sirius question. I think it is sirius only but I could be wrong.

I hope its not sirius only as Sirius XM has been working in other manufacturers cars for 18 months. BMW cant be that far behind the pack I hope.

I took delivery of a 2010 X5 with Sirius Satellite Radio last Wednesday. It's Sirius only radio, although a few channels are labeled "Sirius XM." That's okay with me, as I have been a Sirius listener for six years.

Thats crazy. The MLB baseball package is only offered on XM. Which is why I have both in my 535. I had to have XM added, but its crazy that I should have to do that 18 months after the merger when pretty much every other manufacturer has gotten their act together.

"The Best of XM" is available as an additional subscription for Sirius subscribers. I agree with you. BMW should be installing a Sirius XM radio. I don't know why BMW is behind the curve.

What's really screwed up, I have Sirius in my X5 and XM in my Lexus. They won't discount my subscriptions for two radios because they haven't merged their billing. I also have XM on my I Phone... Now that's behind the curve and I think on purpose...
