how do you know if you have satellite radio?

Hi guys,

I bought my E93 used. It has the Idrive with Nav- so I thought that maybe the car had the satellite radio installed, but not sure how to verify. Any help would be appreciated.

I think you'd see the option under the radio section on the screen. Even without a Sirius activation you'd still see the selection and I think you get some worthless activation station when selected. I guess it might not be coded but that would require someone to probably uncode it.

if you hit the Radio button on your Idrive, Satellite will come up on the screen if you have it installed. You need the premium sound package which includes the satellite tuner.
