    My local VW dealer says two issues I'm having with the Sirius radio in my 2014 Passat aren't common, so I wanted to see if others have experienced either of these problems: 1. When using the steering wheel controls to change preset stations, if I go from a channel on one screen to a channel on...

    Having had a couple rental cars with SiriusXm, I'm hooked. What's the best way to add it to a B5 Passat with the OEM double din head unit? My options seem to be - aftermarket head unit, retrofit a newer VW unit with satellite radio built in, or get one of the units SiriusXm and other retailers...

    I am new to the B6, just traded a B5.5 TDI for it. The B6 has Sirius built in. I found the satellite adapter (8E0-035-593H) and want to replace it with the XM version which I think is either 8E0-035-593E or 8E0-057-593E. One confusion factor is the existing antenna is a shark fin with a single...

    I picked up a 2008 Komfort Wagon today and the owners manual for the audio system is missing. I am trying to actvate the satellite radio but when I called Sirius we could not figure out how to identify the radio by number. Sirius could not look it up using the VIN number either. If any one out...

    Found one. As the title states, looking for a OEM XM satellite tuner in good condition. Doesn't matter if the three month subscription has been used or not. The unit has to be compatible with the factory MFD2 navigation system and TPMS and needs to have both the brown and green plug...

    Ok, I have a 2006 2.0T with the base radio without satellite radio. I want to upgrade to satellite radio, but keep it looking as stock as possible. I am leary about turning over my car to someplace like Best Buy to install a so called "plug and play" XM radio that requires wiring to the radio...

    OK folks. I've got a 2002 B5.5 with Phatnoise. Lately, I've just been too short of time to update my mp3 collection, download new music to phatnoise, and create/manage playlists, etc. So, I'm considering getting satellite radio for my daily commute (1 hour each way). Because the radio...
