Does Sirius XM Satellite Radio Retrofit require me to install any sort of hardware or take apart anything?
All BMW vehicles manufactured after 2011 have the Sirius XM Satellite Tuner embedded into the head unit and pre-wired to your roof antenna. Enabling the functionality requires a digital certificate issued to your VIN and the necessary programming. You will not be required to take apart any panels or add additional hardware. If your vehicle is a convertible however, you will need to install an additional antenna.
What will I need from my end for remote coding?
You will need a Windows or Mac laptop equipped with an Ethernet Port and 4GB of RAM (8GB if using Mac OS). If you have a newer generation Macbook, you may need a Thunderbolt or USB to Ethernet adapter to work with our cable. You will also need a wireless internet or Mobile Hot Spot connection that can reach the vehicle from the outside.
How is remote coding carried out?
We use Team Viewer to remote control into your laptop and code the vehicle from there over your wireless internet connection while you watch. The software setup is all taken car of by your coding specialist so there is nothing else required on your part.
How does this Sirius XM Satellite Radio Retrofit different from the one offered at the dealership?
This is the same factory retrofit that you would have done at the dealer. The only difference is that you pay less for the labor and benefit by having the same level of service at the comfort of your own home.
How long does the Sirius XM Satellite Radio Retrofit take?
We will need 24 hours turnaround time to order the digital certificate for your VIN. If you are opting to have the programming done remotely, we can have the programming session right when you receive your ENET cable in the mail.
I live in Toronto. Is there any way we can have the programming done locally?
Yes, if you live in Toronto you can meet our local coder in person instead.
Do I get free Sirius XM service after completing this retrofit?
Since your radio has never been activated before, you will eligible for a trial anywhere from 3-12 months on the Sirius XM Select Package. If you want to upgrade to All Access, there will be additional fees but these will be calculated on top of the credit you have from the free trial.
