    Search... this has been discussed... dealer has to do something to set up to activate your radio.

    Last year I purchased a new 2012 (demo) RT with the satellite radio. I received a notice in the mail welcoming me to Sirius, and the radio began working without issue. I believe probably the dealer registered it with them, or BMW NA did it automatically. Good luck!

    Pretty sure it wasn't BMW NA. Most likely the dealer. Mine activated my radio.

    I bought a 2013 RT with sat radio that had been activated by the previous owner. It took numerous calls to set up a new account and get the radio ID switched to me. Since then it works fine.
