Thumbs up

Has anyone received the E60 in the US with factory-installed Sirius radio yet? My car is due to arrive in a couple weeks with Sirius installed (Feb 10 build), but I wonder if Sirius will work upon arrival? I've read all the other posts about problems with the pre-wired Sirius not being available yet.

I also wonder how smooth the process of activation will be, and whether the dealer honors the "one-year pre-paid subscription plus two bonus months of free SIRIUS service and free activation" advertised in BMW's press release:

Mine came with it and it has been working great since I made the initial setup call 3 weeks ago. Jan 15 build date car. Factory installed with the car when it arrived at the dealer here in the US. Set up took about 5 minutes on a cellphone while sitting in the car. 14 months free. Not much else to say about it.

Does your sirius unit interface through the i-drive system?
Can you see the titles/artists names on the idrive screen?
Do you have nav?
