    I get am email today from SIRIUS congratulating me on turning on my free sample of SIRIUS radio. I think that's strange, since I, nor my dealer, have the car yet. So I give SIRIUS a call. Yep, it deffinately for my hellcat, and it got turned on on FEB 28th? WTH? The car shouldnt even get to the dealer until MAR 11th. This happen with anyone else? How would anyone other than the dealer acitvate SIRIUS?

    That was just Brampton Builder jamming to some tunes on his lunch break as he was eating a sloppy joe in your front seat.....

    so obviously I know nothing, but that is odd. I wonder if it gets tested to make sure it works before being released?

    Mine was on a few days before I got it. I will have to look back and see, but I did notice activation was a few days before.

    Most dealers have an agreement/arrangement with Sirius to where they can turn your radio on over the phone with the radio electronic signature number. If you are worried about your free time being used up talk to the dealer when you pick up your car. When it expires they will probably give you three more months for free. They do this as a marketing gig for used car to try to get people to maintain the subscription.

    1 year on the 2015s. Uconnect was listed as 6 months but the expiration date they gave me was almost a year.
    The Sirius gets turned on when the car is marked SOLD.
