2004 Porsche Cayenne Part Number & Price For Sirius

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a 2004 Porsche Cayenne S with PCM. I read in one of the manuals that Porsche offered the option of satellite radio that year. And that you had a choice of either XM or Sirius satellite radio. Now I cannot stand XM, I love Sirius for a number of reasons (programming, stations, DJ's, shows, etc.). What I want to know is what is the part number for the Sirius (I know they have different part numbers from XM)? How much is it? How easy is it to get installed? Does anyone know a good place here in Florida to do it?

Thank you,

Todd

Newsflash - "July 29, 2008, Sirius and XM officially merge as Sirius XM Radio, Inc. Sirius XM chosen as new name."

There are two part numbers depending on whether your car has a CD changer or not.

955.044.902.68 Satellite radio set, XM (INo. QV4) with CD autochanger

955.044.902.67 Satellite radio set, XM (INo. QV4) without CD autochanger

Both have an US MSRP of $750 (without installation). Try Sunset Imports for better pricing.

I was looking for the part number for Sirius and not XM. I do have the 6-disc changer in the trunk. I realize they merged as companies, but the programming is still very much different. Sirius is 100 times better. The goal here is to buy the part for the Sirius inexpensively, and then get it installed so that it goes right through the PCM, and to have it installed where I live here in Florida.

I have Sirius on my 04.

I use a Mobridge Unit to connect to the PCM and use a standard Sirius mobile reciever. Total cost of the parts will be $600.

It works VERY well and sound quality is high

You will not get a plug in for the 04 PCM that will work, it was not capable of taking the recievers that were not available

What you see is what Porsche offers (at this point in time).

Have you talked to a dealer to see what they say is available?

I just picked up an 09 Cayenne Turbo S. :lol: I too prefer the Sirius service, but because of how the satellites work. (Check out wikipedia if your interested). Sirius uses 3 satellites that orbit in a north-south figure eight over North America, whereas XM uses 1 equatorial geosynchonous satellite. The upshot of all that is when I am driving through the mountains in Western Canada, which I do alot, the reception is infinitely better on Sirius.

I went to the dealer and you can't even get the XM module yet for PCM3 in the new Cayennes. Only way you can get it now is to order it from the factory. I will check out mObridge.

Thanks

So you plug in your sirius receiver through the mobridge (I take it that mobridge has some kind of aux input)? Thinking of getting a ipod/bluetooth mobridge and it would be nice to link an existing sirius head unit directly to PCM versus FM modulation.

Excellent going to order a mobridge unit now from cartronics. I see your pictures of the installation too - thanks for posting those for everyone.
