Just wondering if anyone still subscribed to XM and/or Lexus Enform after the free trial subscription?

Yep, I will continue my XM subscription after the three months are gone. I surely do like radio with NO commercials!! As for the Enform, eh the Jury is still out on that...might be a bit steep of price for what you get.

I was already an XM customer prior to getting my CT. When I setup my free 3 month subscription, they gave me a credit on my old account. She then asked if I wanted apply that credit to an new annual account (which is what I previously had) at the end of the three months. I told her that I had negotiated a discounted rate on my annual subscription and would only agree to the extension at the same rate, which she then gave me.

IF you're considering extending after the three months, tell XM that you don't want to. They will then offer you a discounted subscription.

As for Enform, I got an extra year for free. After that, I'll have to decide based on how much I use it over the next two years. I'm pretty sure that I'll continue the Safety Connect subscription. But it's "iffy" on Enform.

I have a IS C I got last Dec. When the XM Ended The calls started. That was fine except the price was always different.. They couldn't decide on what the price was. I figured if they want me to sign up and they can't get it together. What would happen down the road.... If I get the CT, I won't be doing it either.

^ The price keeps changing because they're trying to find a price at which you will keep the service. They have a product that has virtually no cost to them on a unit by unit basis. So, they would much rather keep you as a half-price (or even quarter-price) subscriber instead of no subscriber at all. They're also hoping that when that discounted subscription expires, you will remain as a full price subscriber.

Well I kept it as I like the commercial free and best of Sirus packages, but having been a previous Sirus subscriber on my Highlander Hybrid and portable was, am still am, a little ticked off that I don't get a discount for being a Sirus customer (have the life time subscription with Sirus). They tell me it's still operating like two companies :mad: Just another rip off.

I didn't get the XM weather and jury is still out on the Lexus Enform portion.

I only kept the XM NavTraffic and XM NavWeather. I know, it sucks because it only does traffic for highways/freeways, but still. It's something for my 2 hour commute.

I think that it's ridiculous that Sirius/XM hasn't come up with an OEM radio that will work for whichever platform the customer wants. There's no reason why an Sirius cusotomer should be forced to go with XM (and pay for Best of Sirius if they want to maintain all of the programming that they have always had) and vice versa for XM customers buying a car with a Sirius radio in it.

To be honest, if the CT200 came with a Sirius radio, instead of XM, I would have thought twice about buying it.
