How much?

Does it work 100% of the time?

What is the part number?


I purchased one previously from a member and it doesn't always work.

84110141981 is the one i have.. south atlanta bmw( google it) put in that part number. and it will give you all the alternate numbers.. i think i have a 1st generation. it does cut out from time to time. i blame it more on the trees covering the roads in NY. mine came activated... lifetime sub maybe??

Mine will cut out for weeks at a time and then come back.

Sometimes it searches for stations constantly and sometimes it will say the station but with no audio.

Does yours do this or just the normal cut outs when under things like bridges, tunnels, parkades, etc.

Can't tell you why (signed technical nda), but I work for Sirius/XM as an engineer and the XM tuner is the better way to go if you have a choice.

XM radio pic attached:

For the XM radio, I used the car's shark fin antenna. There is a plug in the driver's side, left rear panel. Works great!
