BMW announces today the addition of SiriusXM with 360L to many BMW vehicles starting from the 2021 model year. Available on the 2 Series Gran Coupe, 3 Series, 4 Series, 5 Series, 8 Series, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7 and Z4 Roadsters, SiriusXM’s next generation platform expands audio entertainment options for the BMW owner by offering new features and listening options in and out of their vehicle. The first BMW models equipped with SiriusXM with 360L are expected to be available at BMW dealerships this summer.
With the latest SiriusXM with 360L listening experience, drivers and their passengers gain access to more than 10,000 hours of SiriusXM’s recorded On Demand content whenever they want – including exclusive interviews, unique shows and live performances. With more live channels, an extensive selection of ad-free music, plus sports, wide-ranging entertainment and news, the new expanded platform offers almost limitless options.
“SiriusXM with 360L will be available in several of BMW’s most popular 2021 models, meaning more drivers than ever can discover and enjoy exactly what they want, when they want, from SiriusXM’s variety of premium content.”
New BMW vehicles equipped with standard SiriusXM with 360L include the top-tier 12-month All-Access subscription which also allows for listening on the SiriusXM app on mobile devices and on connected home devices.
New SiriusXM with 360L Platform Highlights include:

Future Software Services and Updates
BMW vehicles that feature SiriusXM with 360L will be equipped to receive software updates that will allow BMW owners and lessees to receive the latest features from SiriusXM. One expected future software update will enable 360L’s newest feature, Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora.
With Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora, drivers can create their own ad-free music stations based on the artist they are listening to, then give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down within the SiriusXM service, or even skip songs, to create their own personal channel that plays more of what they want.
