'09 335i with Sirius Prep... What do I need to do to get Sat Radio?

I'm more than likely getting a '09 335i tomorrow with iDrive and Satellite Radio prep. However, it doesn't have satellite radio. My dad called the parts department manager at a regional BMW dealer yesterday (NOT the one I'm buying the car from, and don't want to say which one because I don't want to be potentially badmouthing this guy, as he has been great to us in the past), and he said it was going to cost over $1000 to actually put satellite radio in the car... He said they would have to put this module or something in and it was going to be like 3 hours of labor. This didn't make sense to me, because the car already has the "prep" work done for Satellite Radio, and this would seem to me to be part of the "prep" work. I've been doing some searching and from what I gather this guy is WRONG, and I only need to buy a Sirius subscription and enter the PIN somehow...

Am I right, or is he?

If it's just a matter of buying a subscription and entering a PIN how do I do that?
