I am going to explore the sirius. I have contacted my BMW dealer and they are checking on the availability of the connection.

Yeah yeah....rub it in.

Yes, we do the installations.

Ok, I take that back. We have installed a XM radio...or at least fixed....to get the XM radio working in an e38.

I wonder if your e65 has the satelite radio prep wire. Hmmm prolly not...but I think they can install it.

Random thinking...sorry.

Yes, it can be done.

I've been searching the web for same year and models...and I've seen them out there....so yes, it's possible... but you have to call your dealership to have them do it. Otherwise....you'll be up a creek without a paddle if you try and do it yourself.

I know FOR SURE it's possible on e65s/e66s 2004 and newer.

Anwho

Call the dealership and they'll tell you how it can be done.

Even if you get directions on how to install it yourself you will still have the issue of coding it to the vehicle, and the only wany to code your xm radio to your 7 is to program it into it, which only BMW dealers can do.

But whatever you do dont go to circuit city and get it installed. There used to working on honduh's which dont have fiber opcti wiring running through them.
