Hello, my name is ***** ***** thank you for using just answer. You could go with a aftermarket stereo that has sirius capabilty. I know on the older beetles ( 2010 ), The sirius module was a completely seperate unit. On an aftermarket stereo, It will be already inside the unit. I would call a local stereo/audio shop and see if they have anything, your car being so new they may not have a adaptor kit, but you could try.
