Add Satellite to an 08 4.8i?

I was looking at a VIN Decoder and it says I have the satellite tuner. Does this mean I need to buy a receiver PN 65209142850. Or is it ready to be coded now? Prod. day is 12-01-07.

it means yo already have one, unless previos owner removed it... when you go to radio, select SAT, does it give you option to dial an 800 humber to activate subscription??

you should have the sat tuner installed from the factory.. if it is not htere, it has been removed and disposed of... if you want to have the sat radio, you need the tuner...

your car is pretty much loaded - does your navigation show your Traffic Info, as listed in your as-built sheet? if I am not mistaken, the Traffic Info inthe US is broadcast by the satellite provider, BMW is not using the radiobroadcast from regular FM stations... we need somebody jump in and confirm or deny this...

what happens when you try to select the Sat radio? anything happens?

I'm not entirely sure. It is still at the dealer and I haven't been able to access it.

The traffic info is available via the FM stations. I had it before I added the SAT tuner to my '08.

quick search of bimmerfest finds this picture...



if your car still has the original tuner, the production date of your tuner must be no later than the production date of your car itself, and no older than a few months before that - the BMW is using Just In Time logistics, and has little items just sitting on the shelves...

When you get the car, and dealer claims that he installed a new tuner for you (if this is your agreement to have the tuner installed), check the dates - the manufacturing date of the "new" tuner must be considerably newer than the car's date of birth - otherwise, if the date falls within the few month prior to car's built, then you had the tuner all along...

the new tuner might have a brand new 1 year FREE subscription included, while the original tuner had that subscrition expired/used up long time ago...

there is a chance of having a remanufactured/refurbished tuner being installed - unless there is a significant savings realized, that could be an issue...

but... i would wait to get the car in your hands to actually see what is going on...
