I just purchased an 04 530i without a satellite radio. I asked the dealer if they could install a factory satellite radio. They told me that my car was not prep'd with the $75 wiring. I asked them to install the $75 wiring. They said they could not because they would have to take apart the entire car to run the wiring and it would cost me a fortune. Can I install a 3rd party XM or Sirus radio and use the GPS antenna that BMW Assit is connected to? Or do I have to use another antenna? Any recommendation?

Depends on the size of your radio hole. There are aftermarket receivers that people hook up to other cars, and I can't see why a BMW would be so much harder.

Sounds like they wanted to re=hardwire the car, and frankly if its that big a project, the wires are probably there already.
