    jef Power Pig, Hello!

    This was already the case for a lot of 2013 Fiat vehicles with certain audio packages. Looks like they've extended it quite a bit.

    Free year came with my 2013 Fiat 500c Abarth with the Beats Audio system. (Yeah, yeah, it was either get the Beats Audio or wait a few weeks. I griped enough about it, they knocked $500 off of the package) :) Only down side is I have to sit in the car to listen to Eddie Trunk now :shock:

    This is a brilliant move giving an Internet Radio sub as well on the trial. I'd guess it would roll over to more brands in the future. Or so I hope.

    I assumed this was always Sirius's future. One car company one upping the other until they all just offered long term Sirius as standard, much like other car options have become expected. The new GM deal kind of negates my assumptions but maybe the Chrysler deal will inspire other manufactures.

    So this Uconnect system means it's ready to go, just push a button and voila, or is this "just buy this other device and then install it and THEN you're ready to go"??

    It sounds like it's the first one, but *drinks more wake-up juice.*
