I just got a new 2004 530i and I really loving it. What a nice car. I would really like to get a satellite radio and am wondering what my options are. I hate the idea of having a seperate display head stuck on my dashboard. Is is possible to get the factory unit installed at this point? Does anyone make an after market unit that integrates with the existing radio?

I am pretty sure that youo can get teh Sirius reciver from the dealership and it will integrate into your radio.

I have a 99 and i think im going to do a retro fit to a 02 or newer radio.

BMW offers sirius and I have it in my other car and I really enjoy it.

hope this helps.

I just called the dealer and they told me that since I have the navigation option the current unit will not work. They are coming out with a compatable unit in October. Guess I'll just have to wait.
