Sirius retrofit convertible antenna

I searched and know I have sat prep.

2015 m4

Bimmertech and bimmer retrofit and even diy coding options I see available and fully understand that.

What are my options for antenna? It just mentions that they have one available and it's easy to install for 110$ on bimmertech.

What have people used?

How about a small generic magnetic one?

OEM only?

Thanks in advance. I'm usually successful with search but haven't found anything on this antenna for sirius on a convertible.

Sat prep includes the antenna. You need sat activation, not retrofit.

Agreed - find one of the coders on here and they can get that activated for you (I did it on my 2015)...more involved than simply coding it on because you need to buy a BMW FSC code that essentially 'unlocks' it and turns it on. The coder will know how to do this. PM if you need help.
