Options Question: XM Satellite
I understand that for 2004 and 2005 XM Satellite Radio was an additional cost option, however, did it become standard (no additional cost) for 2006 - 2009?Rob Loszewski, Owner & Site Administrator

I don't have the answer for the question but curious what xlr owners are paying for xm service. I just got my renewal and they are asking $159.39 for a year. I know that years ago they had a $20 for 5 month package and an $85 a year package.. Would appreciate knowing what the going rate is. I know from past experience you can negotiate with them.

I would have to check my cost but over a year ago I pulled the trigger and bought a lifetime subscription to XM on the XLR. I figured at worst it would be cost effective in about 5 to 6 years if prices never went up. I bet that is unlikely.... I was assured that if the XLR radio had to be replaced the subscription would be transferred to the replacement radio.
Since I have no plan to let this car ever go I am pretty confident this will work out fine.

I bought a lifetime subscription on Sirius in 2010 for $350 for a different vehicle. Last year XM wanted $800+ after first denying any such thing even existed. I decided against it and installed an IPOD interface. IMHO the IPOD has better sound quality. I received an ad for a $25 6 month deal last month. It seems their pricing is highly flexible.
