How to add Sirius to 2014 Mustang

I just purchased a 2014 mustang and on the factory sticker it states the radio is SAT CAPABL. The unit does not have Sirius built in so what is required to equip the car with Sirius? I want to be able to control it through the factory head unit and use sync.

At a minimum the sirius equipped cars came with an antenna for it on the trunk. Not sure if they radio is also different or just adding the antenna is all you need to make it work. It may need the tuner as well, which could be integrated into the radio meaning you'd need to swap for a factory sirius equipped unit plus add the antenna.

Yeah, this unit isn't even equipped with Sirius. I'm just trying to figure out what can be added to the head unit since the factory states SAT CAPABL. You would think you could purchase a Sirius tuner kit and plug it in.

You can. Call the Sirius customer Service and discuss with them. Depending on what you contract with them, the HW may be free. At the very least, I'd expect and ask for that.

Some helpful hints. They will want to set you up with auto billing; I would not recommend this. Set your contract for no more than one year, and mark your calender two month prior to its renewal. Then call them and state you want to cancel your service. They will negotiate a new "teaser" rate for 4 to 6 months. You can usually do this a couple of times before they refuse and charge you the standard rate.

This.

I've been with Sirius for about 10 years and have never paid full price.

Sirius will automatically renew your contract after 3 months. If you just purchased your car you should get (I believe one year free). I turn mine of, as my car is garaged from November April. I have the paperwork as I type, 5 months for $20 and No Reactivation Fee. Make sure you call them or they will automatically renew it.

Soooo, we all know how to bargain sat prices but how do we actually have that capability like the op asked?
Keep in mind, we're talking about a 2014 with Sync and a Sirius button but NO Sirius or antenna on the trunk.
Are we stuck with a separate gadget and visible wires or paying $500 or more for a Ford integrated dealio?

What I ended up doing was purchasing a OEM head unit from eBay that was equipped with SDARS. SDARS is the sirius tuner. Then all I did was purchase a Sirius antenna with the FAKRA connector. The entire project cost me $180. I didn't bother with getting a new bezel with the Sirius button since the music select button on the steering wheel works just fine.

Just some more information. I purchased the antenna from

Sirius Satellite Radio Accessories

The Magnetic SiriusXM Antenna comes with FAKRA coupler. Just be sure to get the SDARS number from the top of the radio. You will need that when you contact Sirius/XM
