I've been a subscriber for many years now and am sold on sat radio.

The radios I have now are an S50 and a sportster replay. Both getting real long in the tooth BUT work real well none the less and have KILLER FM reception.

I'm pretty sure I want to just get a lifetime sub but don't know if I should just have it added to my s50 or buy a new radio and add it to that.

I don't use the portable features ever. Mostly home and car usage.

Considering the limitations on how many times you can do lifetime transfers and the cost, I would get a new radio at the same time of a life time sub.

Getting a life time sub at this time could be a risky investment.

I'm not worried about that. Sirius isn't going anywhere BUT it just SUCKS that they have really nothing new to offer other than that combo unit that gets both services which I don't really care about.

Frig XMs nonsense.

They should just re-release the s50. By far the best sat radio ever.

You can get a lifetime on your existing radio, but factor in probably a $75 transfer fee and + transfer relatively quickly into your breakeven time.

I am debating on making my wife's XM a lifetime too. She has an Airware with a good FM transmitter cut it is 3 years old.

Thats what happens when the company has no money.
