I have ordered a SEL hatch and did not order MFT. It appears the only way to get Sirius in the SEL is to order MFT. Sorta expensive satellite radio if you ask me. Is there a way to add Sirius and still use the factory tuner?
thanks

i read a post somewhere in this forum about someone who had an SEL without MFT and he tried to install Sirius but was unsuccessful. He said his dealer couldnt figure it out. Just a heads up for you

Nope. You can add an aftermarket Sirius radio, but that's it for the time being.

I went through the same decision process when I ordered my SEL hatch. I didn't want MFT and sure didn't want to pay $1,000 for Sirius radio. So I have no Sirius radio in my new Focus! Since I only listened to a couple of music stations on my previous vehicle's Sirius radio, I will get by using the CD player instead!

yeah, i'm not one for paying monthly for radio but to each his own....but to answer your question, ford doesn't have a sirius module for non-mft sel models yet

Unless you really like the on-air personalities that Sirius offers, Pandora over the auxiliary port, or Bluetooth, is a better solution if you have a capable phone.

Does anyone know what is missing? If it is just the antenna that would seem to be a solvable problem. I know this is a small issue but I don't like being defeated by some marketing guy. I a knocked out by the car and somewhat dismayed if I am going to have to wait 3 months for the car, but this gives me a project to pass the time.

For anyone still interested in addin satellite

I have freind who looked this up on ford parts and nothing shows for the 2012. on the 2011 their is a small component(tuner?) that wires to the radio. I wonder if the sat antenna is built into all of our cars, perhaps at the base of the FM antenna?
