Default FYI-- Sirius promo.

I just signed up for a new Sirius-XM promo that gives you both the radio & traffic for 5 months at $34--- Very good deal. I was just trying to sign up for the traffic at $4/month when they offered me the whole deal for a few bucks more.
Worth getting!

Do they have any Radio only Promo's as I've got traffic included with the car for 4 years ('14 A6 TDI) but my radio expired about 2 weeks ago?

I just renewed yesterday (my subscription ran out on the 4th). First phone call was offered the Select Plan at $199 per year. Called back the next day and was offered same at $89 per year - with fees, taxes was just over $100 for the year.

The key is when your current sub is about up you call and ask for the cancellation department. You tell them unless they can give you the "promo" 12 mon radio deal (currently about $89 + tax/fees), you are gone. Has worked for me every year since 2008.

I agree with Snagit except tell them you want the 5 month deal for $24.99 + royalty fee. If you threaten to cancel they will give it to you. I have 4 vehicles on this plan and I call in and renew them every 5 months. Been doing this for years.

I just renewed few days ago. Sirius select. First, they offered 1 year for $89 + taxes and later 6 months for $30 ($33 after taxes) which I took.

Picked up a CPO 2013 a6 in April and finally got around to contacting Sirius to get a free trial (figured I could ask for one as I never have had an account before). I asked for a 6 month free trial, person came back saying I was all setup for a 48 month trial. Did I miss something? 48 > 6 correct? Sounds too good to be true. Happy as long as this is legit. Used online chat on their website. Hope this helps someone!

Audi includes free Sirius Traffic only for 48 months, not radio. The free trial for Sirius radio is 3 months. And T-Mobile Audi Connect free trial is for 6 months. All of these are for new car purchases only unless the previous owner on a used car did not cancel or transfer to another car.

Sirius Traffic integrates with your nav by displaying traffic conditions on major roads and traffic problem reports available on the MMI screen.

I got the $28 for 5 month deal. They called me with the offer right up front. Honestly, the sound quality sucks so bad on Sirius, I wouldnt pay any more than that. I use it mostly for news and talk radio only.

This. I have an Outlook calendar reminder every 5 months to play the Sirius cancellation/renewal game.

to get traffic, chat or call Sirius, they'll probably just give it to you for 4 years like me. tell them you just got a (new to you) car. to follow up on my story above, I did get 4 years of traffic for free and have just gotten 3 months of radio for free. Hope to get one of the good offers above ($28 for 5 months) after that 3 months is up. thanks for clarifying the traffic mix up.

Yes. For $3.99 @ month. The 4 year free traffic was only included with new MY2013 or later Nav Plus equipped Audis.

Sirius music trial started when my car was sold, Audi Connect when it was delivered to me in the US. Guess which one ran out before I could use it? Guess which company will get $0 from me? Seems pretty short-sighted, but there you have it.
