Has anyone heard when the "Sirrus radio" will be available for the new 2004 BMW's?
I purchased the prep package for it when I bought my car, but as of late, the dealer told me they were still trying to get it to work with the car's I-drive technology. The 2004 745 Li has the really complicated I-Drive system and I am hoping BMW will make this happen... soon!

Gotta laugh! Check and see what BMW is going to charge you for the switch... they bought back my '02 745Li lemon, pre-paid lease, and I've just discovered that this buy back is costing me $25,000 - tacked on at the end of the lease as the "buy out". BEWARE!!!!! (Starting litigation...)

"Sirrus Radio" is already working in my Ford Excursion, I didn't have any problem. But the last thing I ould do is try to fix a 745Li, way too many problems, get an M3 or M5. Atleast they barely have problems(as I know of).

Sirrus works in all the newer models...they MUST have a factory inserted wire that costs $75....if your vehicle doens't have this installed...then you can't have Sirrus...unless it is OEM.....I'm not sure about OEM reliablity...I wouldn't trust it.
