SiriusXM Radio


Recommended Posts

Hello All!

My wife has decided she would like SiriusXM in her 530i. However, it needs to be programmed with the code to receive satellite radio. Of course, from BMW, it’s around $351.00. I’ve seen on some sites, it’s $69.00 - $100.00 to get the code on a USB drive where it will self-install. I’m not enthusiastic about the $351.00 and I’m uncertain of the USB drives although these sites guarantee it will be a successful install and code the radio correctly. We were given a free 1-year subscription of SiriusXM Platinum. What are your thoughts?

Morning Richard

If you can find someone local who has a copy of BMW ISTA/INPA on a laptop who should be able to download a onetime code from BMW (at a cost $$ of course) 

The USB codes I have never used but I would look at US forums for Sirius not just BMW and talk to a few members to get a bit more Information on how they work or not

Good luck
