My satellite radio only requires subscription to satellite radio to work. Came with 1 year for free. This must be for cars that don't come with satellite option but you add it after the fact as most of the hardware is there hence "satellite prep"

Smile Enable Sirius XM in 2002 Countryman

Hey there Shawn

Hoping you can help.

The car has Apple car play and I was told all that needs to be done is to enable the satelite feature.

Help.

Thx

SiriusXM

Hey

Just bought a 2019 BMW X3 . It has no sat option in the radio menu. I called BMW here in Canada and they said all it needs is a code which they want $375 for and 2 hour of labour at $160 an hour. What's the bets option other than going to my local BMW dealer? I already have a subscription to Siriusxm that I pay yearly for

Thanks

E92 Sirius Activation

Not sure if this is method is valid on an E92, but Iím relatively well versed in the coding business, having added XM to my old 07 E90, amongst other things. Can you let me know if I am able to just buy just the FSC code and do the coding on my own? My car has the XM prep package specíd out to it, the only hold out is that the SDARS module does not communicated to ISTA, but I believe that is by design. Thanks in advance!
