I was told Lifetime couldn't be transferred in the car unless something happened like a car wreck :eek2: And you had to buy a new car. But if you sold your car the Lifetime would end. Its funny Sirius has stopped giving Lifetime subs and XM just started :confused: Some merged company this is anyway :rolleyes:

Staging a car wreck is a rather extreme solution just to get a lifetime sub. Also, if you sell your car to someone else, which one of you is going to call up and tell them to cancel the subscription??? ;)

I signed up with lifetime almost 6 years ago, IIRC it was only about $300 back then, so I'm way ahead of the deal, just hope they stay on the air.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

How would they even know? It's not like billing addresses/methods/names would change since there is no bill. And since the vehicle has a lifetime subscription to Sirius, the car would be worth more value. Just sell the car and be done with it.

Yeah, I was told it's the lifetime of the receiver plus 3 replacements. What always annoyed me was that it doesn't say that anywhere, but they just tell you "it's known." Why can't they just publish it then because there's no stopping them from saying that's not the case.

With that said, I'm only on my 2nd receiver and I got my lifetime subscription in 2004, so I'm definitely ahead of the game. Great deal, I must say!

That's just what XM said. They wouldn't really know. See Mr. King's post :lol:
