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?
