What model years are wired for satellite radio?

I've read here on the forum that its MY 2004 and up that are prewired for Sirius sat radio. Is this true?
I might be in the market for a used ML500 and if a 2003 doesn't have satellite radio I might as well bump up my search to 2004.

Thanks

the information I have is as follows;

Early model year 2004 MCS with part number 163 820 03 79 have a SVC service button. Later in the year an MCS with SAT button became available as of VIN 489 208 with part number 163 820 05 79.

Thanks Mike. From what you said I guess I need to see a SAT button on the radio head unit then if I'm going for a 2004 ML.

Yes, look for the SAT button but that does not mean that the SAT receiver is installed. You may still need to find the Mercedes SAT receiver accessory. I have the SAT button in my 05ML but do not have a SAT receiver installed.

Pete,

Rusting out pretty good I guess. I figure I can probably get another winter out of her before the gas tank falls out. lol
