Do you have an external antenna or is it integrated in the window? Our Passat radio reception crapped out, and it turned out there's a powered based on the antenna that had to be replaced. Common on VW, not sure about Audis.

I don't get any radio stations very clear in my car, and only about two that even come in.It's not an RNS-E problem because it was the same with the Symphony II...but I was wondering if you guys know of some way to boost the signal? Anyone ran into this before and found a solution? ________________ http://www.downloadvlcplayer.org
