Need advice on adding XM to a 2004 530i

I'm thrilled to have found this site. Just bought a 2004 530i yesterday and I am trying to get advice on adding XM to the factory sound system. I'm hoping an option is out there which will allow me to use the steering wheel controls without having to put in a different radio.

Any help would be appreciated.

Great site!

Take it to BMW. Aftermarket isn't always very compatible and could cause unforeseen issues in other areas of the car (really, its crazy). I'm out for a few days
