As the title says I have 4 XM radios and am picking up a new car with Sirius next week. I am guessing even though the two are one now I can't add the new car onto my XM for $7 can I? Does anyone know if the 6 mo. free I am getting will include the XM stuff? Also for Sirius sub's this is on a sports car that will most likely be shelved in the winter can I get 6mo. in the summer and cancel then enroll again the next summer easily or will it just be too much of a headache to save $70?

Don't know.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Sirius XM really needs to get their accounting departments joined together. That would really help them because people that have both Sirius and XM could take advantage of the credits rather than dropping radio subs because they don't want (nor should they have to ) pay double.

Yes you can suspend your account for 6 months, just tell them it's a summer ride. You shouldn't be charged an activation fee every summer when you start the subscription up either.

Thanks guys. I was afraid they weren't totally merged. It'll be a long drive home without O&A but I'll make it.
