150 premium channels. 30 minutes to install. 50% off dealer pricing.
Plus, up to 12 months FREE!
The SiriusXM Satellite Radio Retrofit is your ticket to enjoying premium sat radio in your BMW — even if your 2010 or newer car didn’t originally come with the package. As long as it has the BMW Satellite Radio Preparation option (all 2010 or newer BMWs sold in the U.S. and Canada feature this SA693 option), you are just a few minutes of remote activation away from more than 150 channels of music, entertainment, sports, weather, traffic, and much more. Most retrofits don’t require any parts or installation other than remote activation with a BMW factory code. And we do that part for you for way less than dealers charge. No wonder it’s one of our most popular kits! We wrote about our easy process here.
How to decide what you need:
2010 or newer BMWs…
If your 2010 or newer BMW did not come with SiriusXM factory-installed, it will feature the BMW Satellite Radio Preparation (SA693) and is ready for satellite radio and activation with the BimmerTech SiriusXM Satellite Radio retrofit kit. However, 1-Series, 2-Series, 3-Series, or 4-Series convertibles don’t come with the necessary Sirius Antenna. Fortunately, it is available right here at BimmerTech and takes just minutes to install. No other equipment other than our retrofit kit is necessary!
Pre-September 2010 1-Series or 3-Series BMWs…
Some of the models without Navigation System Professional built between September 2009 and August 2010 feature Radio Professional and require a new radio to properly activate SiriusXM (even if the SiriusXM pre-wiring is already in place). If you are unsure if your model can be upgraded,
us and we’ll let you know.
2009 or earlier BMWs…
As long as your pre-September 2009 model is equipped with the satellite radio preparation, enjoying SiriusXM Satellite Radio is possible in your car. These older models do require some extra equipment, however, like the BMW SiriusXM tuner and sometimes a bracket. One of the best sources for this equipment is eBay. Once you have it, BimmerTech can activate your service with our SiriusXM Satellite Radio activation. While a free SiriusXM trial (see below) is not available for this particular activation, you may still qualify for a BimmerTech activation discount. If you have any questions about this or need some guidance,
Free SiriusXM All Access Package
If you are the car’s original owner, you qualify for a free 1-year subscription to the SiriusXM All Access Package. If you have a pre-owned BMW, you still get a free 3-month subscription to this premium package. That means more than 150 satellite radio channels like Howard Stern, MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, comedy, and tons more. Plus, you can access all that content and more on your computer, smart phone, or tablet. See everything this package offers here.
What channels will I get?
Channel availability depends on your vehicle’s chipset. All BMWs and MINIs without factory navigation, in addition to F48 X1 and i8 vehicles even with navigation, have the Sirius chipset, and will therefore receive the Sirius channel lineup. 2017 BMWs or MINIs with factory navigation have the SiriusXM chipset, and will therefore receive the full SiriusXM channel lineup.
