Factory Sirius Upgrade

So I have decided to have my dealer install the Sirius radio in my newly acquired '10 335d, factory prepped. Was informed the radio kit is on hold due a software problem. Anyone have any info on this?
Thanks, Mike

Your OEM HU must be replaced so Sirius can be installed. That could be the real issue, the new radio is not available due to a software problem.

You may want to pick one up on ebay. Ive seen compatible ones as cheap as $100. Then work with technic/bimmertech to get it set up. Youll save a lot

Btw sirius from satellite streams at 32-48kbps (crap). Sirius apps on phones stream at 128. Food for thought.
