5. To be Sirius/AUX or XM compatible, the radio must be SW 43 or higher.
6. Turn radio off to exit.

The MODE button is not a good enough of an indicator to check if a radio is AUX or Sirius compatible. It needs to be manufactured 09/02 or later.
I have Professional HU in a 2002 model of 318i. And yes, I have the MODE button. SV 03-02 66 - is it AUX compatible?
