Can you add a pre-exisiting sirius subscription to the audio?

Hey guys.. I've searched around but haven't quite found the answer to this questions. I've been a sirius subscriber for a few years with my own module/antenna, etc. Is there a way to use this subscription directly with the car? I recently picked up an '07 e92 with logic7.

I've played around with mounting the device but it's always obtrusive. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

I'm not sure if this helps but. I had a previous subscription on my Porsche and when i bought my BMW to use as my commuter i call sirius and ask the to move service over from one car to the other. it was a charge of 75.00 and they also stated i cannot transfer again. I also have a lifetime subscription though. If your car is not come equipped with sirius already I'm sure they sell a kit for an aftermarket setup.

That's good to know! Doesn't really help out with my original question though. No one seems to know

I'm not sure that anyone understands your question.

Your car requires a Sirius module to work. If you have that, then you can move your existing subsciption.

If you don't have a sirius module, then you need to buy the BMW module that fits your car or one of the aftermarket solutions made specifically for your car.

You cannot use a non-compatible Sirius module and use you existing BMW radio to control it.

I've given you a variety of things that may answer your question - if not, please re-state your question.

Not sure if you still have this question or not but I did this today. When I traded in my old car for my new e90, I called sirius and they moved my subscription and within 5 minutes it was active on my new ESN.
