Sirius advertises a la carte packages for abut 8$ per month. This fits my need since I would never listen to 80% of the channels. However, Sirius says the radio must be capable of a la carte programming. So....do MB radios have this a la carte capability?

So, are you saying that 2009 - 2012 MB vehicles do not have a la carte capability?

I think XM/Sirrus is just overrated. I never enabled it on my SLK the preview channels had poor bitrate which results in poor audio quality. If you listen to talk shows and news, I guess that's OK. For me, it's Pandora and a $36/year and I can listen to it anywhere. Have my stations that I have been customizing for the last 4 years already, no commercials. Perfect!

Although I do have Sirius, I agree completely with cheahk. I think Pandora is one of the best things since sliced bread. Especially for a guy like me who lives in a musical time bubble. :biglaugh:

If you call and tell them you are going to cancel they will switch you to a customer retention person who will give you a special price to not cancel. If it is a new car and the trail is running out let it run out and a month after is stops working you will get letters in the mail with a special price. either way it will most likely be a better price than la carte pricing.

An email to Sirius was finally answered. As Jeff pointed out a la carte is not available for MB radios. I appreciate the advice regarding Pandora and will explore that option. Thanks!

got some weird workings going on with the COMAND whenever I get in the car and use my iPhone music app. Sometimes it doesn't register the song info. I've been able to reset it by unplugging it and replugging it. However it seems as if I connect it prior to starting the engine (like if i left the phone in the car), it has "Entry 5... " etc.
